Anakena: The Easter Island Project

RICHARD SPEER
1-4 pm, talk at 3 pm, Saturday June 15
 
As part of the Cooley Gallery’s Case Works project space, prolific blogger and film, video and performance artist Tiffany Lee Brown exhibits and lectures about her five-year artistic obsession, Anakena: The Easter Island Project. The subject of this intensely personal exhibition is Brown’s evolving views about motherhood. At the beginning of her journey, she was a passionate “childless by choice” activist; then her biological clock began to tick loudly and she found herself unhappily child-free; finally, she and her husband, Josh Berger, became the parents of a bright-eyed baby boy. The complicated emotions surrounding this evolution were the reason for Brown’s trip to the island of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), where she performed fertility-related rituals beneath the towering stone heads for which that island is known. Her talk promises to be self-revelatory, compassionate and humorous. 1-4 pm Saturday, June 15.
