"Lost Codes" is a work in progress by Ibrahim Quraishi. The event begins with a tour of Robert Wilson's collection by artists in residence Quraishi and Gabriel Smeets.
Lost Codes “…explores the importance of codes, bodies and objects inside specific communities,” according to the artist. His aim is to create an installation using Robert Wilson’s objects, many of which come from different religious and spiritual realms. In general, Quraishi is interested in the relationship certain religious communities have to their scared rituals and how those rituals are embodied through the empowerment of their chosen objects.
The Watermill Center is located at 39 Water Towd Rd, Water Mill, NY. For information and reservations, click here.
