    STEVEN SIEGEL

    October 14 – November 25, 2017
    1315 Mass MoCA Way, North Adams, MA

    Steven Siegel’s works consistently push the boundaries of how we view the detritus of our day-to-day life. His works are created from recycled materials such as newspapers, aluminum cans and plastic bottles, which he recasts into site-based or landform sculptures. Wanting his biodegradable sculptures to have an impact on their surroundings, his works also challenge us to look again at how these discarded elements can be recast into meaningful and documentarian sculptures.

    SUNCHEON WEAVE

    STEVEN SIEGEL

    Suncheon Bay International Eco-Environmental Art Festival, 2016
    Suncheon, South Korea

    Suncheon Weave was commissioned by the Suncheon Bay International Eco-Environmental Art Festival for Suncheon, South Korea in 2016.  It was built on the site over the course of a week by two professional carpenters and 4 or 5 volunteers.  The work consists of 10,000 lbs of newspaper overruns that are woven between existing pine trees and heavy poles that were planted in place. After dozens of iterations of paper sculptures made over 25 years, Suncheon Weave is the second that uses a single wall technique. It allows for a visitor to enter into the quiet, walled space within the grove of trees.

    BIOGRAPHY

    STEVEN SIEGEL

    September 19 – November 1, 2015
    1315 MASS MoCA Way, North Adams MA

    CYNTHIA-REEVES launches their new season at 1315 MASS MoCA Way with Biography, the gallery’s debut exhibition of American sculptor, Steven Siegel, since joining the gallery in 2015. A concise show of conceptual installations, Siegel finds his muse through piles of discarded remnants. As an excavator, geologist, sociological commentator and documentarian, Siegel culls through the detritus of our daily lives – plastics, rubber, wires, casing and molded housings – items that speak of a culture unconcerned with the consequences of our ingenuity.
