Events | Professor Anna Greidanus Artist Talk


Professor Anna Greidanus will be giving an artist talk on Friday, November 15 at 1:30 p.m.

“Beyond End Product” in the art history lecture hall (SC150).

Professor Graidanus will mention her Survivors Project and other ongoing projects.

On Survivors Project:

A collaborative installation engaging the theme of cancer survival. Participants include persons whose lives are touched by the disease, individual patients, caregivers and supporters are the makers of one-of-a–kind, hand cast shells, modular components combined to form the installation structure. These translucent shells contain objects created or appropriated and assembled to make a visual statement about the cancer experience. The work, installed in the Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion lobby, reveals personal responses to the disease in a public context at a site where treatment occurs. The element of light, integrated through placement of this installation in relationship to windows, functions as a powerful metaphor. Accompanying the installation is a book of participants’ reflective statements. Viewers are invited to consider themes related to the experience of cancer, treatment, and healing from the inside out.
