This past weekend saw the opening of one of the most impressive displays of art Albany has ever seen, HEAVY.
The event lived up to its name, completely transforming St. Joseph’s (and the surrounding neighborhood, even!) into an art playground.
Pal Sébastien Barré covered all kinds of bases with this blog post and photo set from HEAVY.
Here are a few images from the weekend that don’t necessarily overlap with some of the other images I’ve seen; including a few from the Dwell/OneUnit “Fireflies and Night Skies” room (that you had to look to find…) and a few outside shots.
As far as music goes, I feel lucky to have been able to perform a sixty minute improvisation featuring looped samples, vocals and affected mandolin. There were two moments during that time where I felt terribly connected to the space, despite being completely insular and uncommunicative with beings in the room.
If you had to miss the opening weekend; well, you’re in luck! It was announced yesterday that HEAVY will once again be open starting this Friday (7/30) at 5PM (again on Saturday as well) with no less than 10 new installations/artists collaborating on more work!
