Consumer Mandala: Live installation with artist Stephanie Senge
October 8, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Direct from Berlin, Germany, artist Stephanie Senge will create a mandala made of consumer products and food that she has sourced and shopped for in Pittsburgh. In Market Square, rain or shine, Senge will build the mandala in the midst of the Farmer’s and Artisan’s Market between 10am – 4pm and all are free to witness this public artmaking. At 4pm, viewers will take what they wish – dismantling the mandala and distributing the products and food to those who want it, for free. Afterwards, all are welcome to join us in the closing reception of Drap-Art in the adjacent PPG Wintergarden – Stephanie Senge participates in the Re:NEW Festival as a Drap-Art exhibiting artist.
From Wikipedia: A mandala (Sanskrit: मण्डल, lit, circle) is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions, representing the universe. In common use, “mandala” has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe.
