HERE LIES A FLAG AT DAVENPORT PARK
Venezuelan Artist-in-Residence, Miguel Braceli presented the public art event Here Lies a Flag at the beautiful Daventport Park, New Rochelle.
The project had the participation of New Rochelle High School students, and the support of Iona College and The New Rochelle Parks and Recreation.
“Miguel Braceli’s works are site-specific participatory projects centered on education by reimagining different ways of learning while working collectively in public space. One can participate in the creative process accessing the social, political, and experiential realities of different places as Braceli transforms the city into a school.
The act of burying a flag opens a poetical approach to the imagination of new possible geopolitics. This type of art modifies the perception that one could have of the open public space as a work of visual art in three-dimensions created with a playful, formative and critical intention.
One cannot escape the Beuyssian connotations in this project given the educational character that the professor of the Kunst Akademie in Dusseldorf gave to the installations and the photographs that were made of his performances. Photographs, aerial shots, and videos were taken at Braceli’s Davenport Park collective performance, autonomously existing in the creative process. The result of these visual “relics” derived from the installation will be displayed at various points in New Rochelle for the engagement with the community and preservation of the memory.” – Matilde Daviu*
