Concluding the 2024 Sunroom Project Space season, Stephanie Beck’s site-specific exhibition Bough features abstract sculptural “drawings” created from hinged lines of wood, branches and dried plants collected at Wave Hill. Accompanied by a sound piece consisting of the songs of local migratory birds whose populations are declining, the bird songs are silenced upon entering the exhibition space. Beck’s project speaks to how we manipulate the natural world to serve our needs grafting trees together, shaping them through trimming, tying, and weighting, to more destructive actions such as forest clearing that cause the decline of plant and animal species.

Organized by Curator of Visual Arts Rachel Raphaela Gugelberger, the Sunroom Project Space is an open call opportunity for New York-area artists to develop and exhibit a site-specific project as a solo show. The 2024 applications were reviewed by a panel of arts professionals including Kiara Cristina Ventura, writer, curator and founder of the roving curatorial platform Processa; Jacq Groves, 2023 Sunroom Project Space interdisciplinary artist and educator; and Gugelberger.
