About the Item

Michele Brody, Re-Blooms, Installation, Handcast Paper, Bamboo, 8'h x 5'w x 3'd, 2019 The essence of Michele Brody’s work thrives on the interaction with new communities and place-making. Once there, she explores what it means to establish roots within an unfamiliar environment by being present within a place to affect change. With each new location Brody conducts a careful investigative method that involves the gathering of regional materials, native plants, local stories, historic references and architectural imagery. This unique approach to social practice creates site-generated works of art that illuminate the unobserved in day to day surroundings and the challenges facing the environment. Through the process of utilizing such natural media as handmade paper, plants and tea, the materiality of her work explores the history of production behind these material choices as a nuanced understanding of environmental flux due to entropy and human-made climate crises. Building from this unpredictable foundation, Brody invites community interaction, evoking a visceral social encounter within a shared space that comments on the tenuous relationship between nature and humans within the built environment. Michele Brody is a New York City based, mixed-media environmental artist with an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Fiber and Material Studies Department. She has received a grant or residency almost every year since 1995 from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, LMCC, Pollock/Krasner Foundation, NYFA, Bronx Council on the Arts, NYSCA, Skowhegan, Wave Hill and the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation. In 2006 Brody completed two public art works in The Bronx for the MTA and DOE. In 2011 the artist was awarded the Best 3-D Entry at the international Art Prize competition in Grand Rapids, MI. Michele Brody exhibits her artwork widely and has been included in exhibitions at ODETTA and online with ODETTA Digital.
