KLRU and Arts In Context asked the artist Johnny Walker to create a site specific, collaborative art project during EAST. His work called Significant Objects & Sentimental Values is about the relationship of clothing and outfits to facts and fictions. The installation of the piece will take place on 11/16 and will be created through public participation.The Griffin School, Parkside Community School, Goodwill and the community at large are donating clothes and stories. The artist is asking that for each item donated that you share the story that is connected to the garment – a personal anecdote or a flash fiction. Write the story down on a piece of paper and stick it into one of the pockets or pin it to a sleeve. In addition each garment or outfit will be photographed and its accompanying story will be logged into a catalogue that will appear online. At the end of the project the garments will be donated to Goodwill. Within each garment a small tag will be sewn in that will give the website address and the tag number for the garment. This will allow the next owner of the garment to inquire into its history and add new chapters of their own.
The creation and installation of Significant Objects & Sentimental Values will be captured for an Arts In Context Shorts.
