Works by Megan Altieri
Sonder illustrates the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as our own. In our awareness of even a single other person we begin to grasp the magnitude of the 7.6 billion coexisting realities all as specific and important as one another.
Over the past two years, Altieri has gathered fragments of overheard conversations and hand-stamped them on articles of clothing matching those of the speaker. Displaying these garments on a series of clotheslines illustrates nakedness and openness, encouraging viewers to embrace vulnerability.
Sonder: Works by Megan Altieri opens at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts on March 27. Sonder won the Installation Public Vote Award at ArtPrize 2018.
