A new exhibit with connections to local history is now open at the Housatonic Museum of art. Entitled Artist Rachel Owens’ exhibit, “The Hypogean Tip,” explores both Bridgeport’s and our larger nation’s past. — an announcement from the Housatonic Museum of Art
The show, which runs through March 21, is comprised of sculptures rendered in various materials, including large-scale casts in broken glass from the porch of the home of Mary Freeman (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) and works cast in coal and marble dust that invoke P.T. Barnum’s specter as well as his adverse impact. Focusing on the relationship between what was before and what is to come, Owens’ work weaves together, both literally and figuratively, the surface and substrata of the ground to reveal its structure, material, and history. The porch sculptures, part of an ongoing project entitled Life on the Other Side of a Cracked Glass Ceiling, are a platform for visitors to climb and stand on while reimagining the site and the accounts it holds.
