Migrations — People and Art Ideas Constantly Migrate

DOEprojekts (Deborah Adams Doering and Glenn N. Doering) participated in artist Pia Camil's installation at the New Museum, NYC, titled "A Latch for a Pot." We are wearing cloaks made by Camil, which were given away to participants, part of her previous installation at the 2015 Frieze art fair.

Our "latch" was a long "Coreform" white box adorned with our unique Hybr pin. The New Museum curators embellished our box with three trophies,  which are "latches" from another contributor.

In exchange -- our "pot" -- we chose a handmade quilt by artist-writer Mary Barone that was made in fashion designer Susan Cianciolo's class. New Museum Curator Margot Norton was very kind to provide us with personal and distinctive information about Barone's handmade quilt, as well as general information about all the objects in "A Pot for a Latch." These objects are conceptualized as "res," a term from Roman times, denoting talismans, objects that have personal value, history, and power.

DOEprojekts is constantly exploring contemporary art ideas and creating objects and installations with cultural value, history, and power. Our 2017 installation at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture, NYC, will investigate the many facets of the keyword "migrations." Below is a preview of our drawings and art embroidery samples.

We look forward to keeping in touch with you about these upcoming projects and art actions!
