"Babel Part Four: Redemption - Works by Susan Berstler and Lee Mandell"
2001-12-06 until 2001-12-22
Mobius, Fort Point Cultural Coalition
Boston, MA, USA

The series BABEL resulted from an act of violence along the Mystic River. Outside Reclamation Artists' Berstler and Mandell had turned five computer monitors into working aquariums by the river. Peopled with goldfish, their work was then viciously vandalized within days of the installation.

Since then, the artists have rechanneled their initial anger and frustration by creating a four part series of Babble, Limbo, Requiem, and now, Redemption. The series is intended to parallel the very real battle that is taking place in Assembly Square, Somerville (MA) between big box developers vs. the little folk of the neighborhood. This latest Babel installation creates a grotto of redemption, populated by partial white casts of male and female figures, hinting at a distressed Adam and Eve dwelling in a surreal Eden filled with lush blue Astroturf.
