REVOLUTION at the SEED Barn
July 14 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In conjunction with the 2019 Ghetto Biennale (http://ghettobiennale.org), this exhibition initiates explorations of the historic connections between Maine and Haiti. Encouraging an examination of the entangled mobilities between plant-human and non-human relationships held sacred by indigenous communities, we will consider the role plants played through the Haitian revolution and how plant-based practices in both geographies may inform each other as we navigate our way through food sovereignty, sacred/medicinal relationships and rewilding efforts.
Sculptures by Atis Rezistans members are installed through the gardens around the SEED Barn and will remain on view through the summer. The sale of these artworks will directly support continued restoration efforts in the central urban zones of Port-Au-Prince. The SEED Barn in Blue Hill Falls was built by the ship builder, John Cheever, who constructed tall ships in Conary Cove. It is also located at mulatamicuwon, traditionally used by the Penobscot. The history which has unfolded in this place makes it a relevant platform to explore the ties between seemingly disparate geographies.
There will be a garden tour at 1:30 p.m. and tea at 2. The SEED Barn is located at 53 Falls Bridge Road, Blue Hill. For more information, call 374-2947.
