BOMBLive! BOMB Magazine Interview, 2007

BOMBLive! Ellen Driscoll & Anita Glesta, In Conversation Proteus Gowanus Gallery Brooklyn, Fall 2007 Anita Glesta’s Gernika/Guernica, shown in Lower Manhattan in Spring 2007, juxtaposed the provocative abstraction of Picasso’s infamous painting with survivor accounts of the 1937 bombing of a Basque village. Ellen Driscoll’s sculpture Revenant, a bridge made from hundreds of #2 plastic bottles, was recently installed at the Nippon Ginko Bank in Hiroshima, Japan, one of the few structures to survive the atomic blast. The two artists discuss the power of memory and storytelling in this second BOMBLive! installment of “In the Open: Art and Architecture for Public Spaces” Series, filmed at Proteus Gowanus in Brooklyn.
