Rhonda Weppler and Trevor Movosky host a special evening event marking the transformation of their installation, there is nothing you can think that is not the moon, which currently houses over 300 handmade lanterns the artists started making in 2022. Rhonda and Trevor invite you to take home one of these unique lanterns, a rare opportunity to receive an artwork and give these lanterns an extended life. The parade of illuminated lanterns leaving the exhibition will create a scattering of light, reminiscent of traditional lantern festivals.
The making and sharing of these lanterns is an evolving aspect of the duo’s practice where they create an economy of copying, sharing and remaking objects. The current lanterns will be replaced by lanterns visitors have made during special workshops with Rhonda, that replicate objects they have lost or given away. These lanterns, small time capsules of visitor’s memories mirroring objects that once existed, will remain on view through winter.
Join us at The Arts Center at Governors Island on September 3, 6:30pm - 8:30pm for this magical experience!
