Josephine Meckseper, a New York City artist, photographer, and cinematographer, has installations of a different sort on display at the Parrish Art Museum this summer and fall.
The exhibition is part of the Parrish’s “Platform” series, experimental artist-driven projects that aim to use all aspects of the museum as a canvas. The installations mix a number of artistic disciplines that in conjunction are designed to evoke certain feelings.
It’s quite common to see deer while driving around East Hampton. Every time I drive by the open field on Apaquogue Road there are at least 40 standing there, grazing like cattle. They have practically been domesticated, and thus we are immune to their presence.
We smirk as they munch on our neighbors’ flowers and vegetable gardens. But most of the time, we simply see them as part of the landscape and move on.
