Laumeier Sculpture Park, St. Louis presents an exhibition of recent sculpture by Jessica Stockholder. The exhibition, which opens February 12, features eleven sculptures full of quirks and unexpected materials. Stockholder’s work engages elements of painting, sculpture and architecture with objects more commonly found in backyards and living rooms. Her playful nature is reflected in the name of the exhibition, Grab grassy this moment your I’s. The title offers an abstract grammatical puzzle emblematic of her work that strives to change how we see common objects and materials. The exhibition includes Stockholder’s work, Flooded Chambers Maid, 2009-10, installed in Laumeier’s Children’s Sculpture Garden in October 2010. The long-term loan was commissioned by the Madison Square Park Conservancy, was previously exhibited in Manhattan’s Madison Square Park. The work will provide a platform for future performances, readings and children’s programs.
