Chesterwood announces a site-specific installation by New York conceptual artist Marko Remec, on view in the Studio Field through Oct. 2.
The work, titled "Remember What (Field Totem)," is the latest in Remec's "Totem Series" and is a reconfiguration of a portion of his installation "Can't Hear You (Fat Totem)," which was exhibited at Mass MoCA in North Adams in June.
The installation features 128, 32-inch dome mirrors arrayed in the pattern of a chessboard gone awry. Each mirror reflects 180-degree views of Chesterwood's landscape along with fleeting views of those observing the work.
The installation is the first in a new series of site-specific work called "Field Work" that will be featured in the Studio Field at Chesterwood each season. Artists will be invited to submit proposals for future installations.
