Artists Rhon­da Wep­pler and Trevor Mahovsky host a spe­cial evening event mark­ing the trans­for­ma­tion of their instal­la­tion, there is noth­ing you can think that is not the moon, on view at Low­er Man­hat­tan Cul­tur­al Coun­cil (LMCC)‘s Arts Cen­ter at Gov­er­nors Island. This instal­la­tion 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 at LMC­C’s Arts Cen­ter through winter.
