Model Village

Model Village is a video and sculpture installation commissioned for Commonage Callan 2010  curated by Jo Anne Butler, Tara Kennedy and Rosie Lynch. The video work visits a remarkable miniature village in Pennsylvania USA at Road Side America, patiently hand built by one man, Laurence Gieringer, over a period of sixty years. The model village articulates the way in which rural America developed over a two hundred year period.

The sculpture was made from discarded bed heads found in the old Callan co-op, also where the exhibition was held.
