SABINA OTT: WHO CARES FOR THE SKY?
Hyde Park Art Center presents the most ambitious project to date by Sabina Ott in who cares for the sky?, which challenges our understanding of the proverbial mountain in relation to human faith, perseverance and ability to achieve a higher knowledge.” With the assistance of Space Haus, a Chicago-based art,design, and engineering firm, Ott composed an 8,000-cubic-foot mountain out of polystyrene, plywood, industrial spray foam and paint inspired by Gertrude Stein’s “The World is Round” (1938), the cultural icon’s only children’s book. The story follows a little girl, Rose, in her struggle to climb a difficult mountain in order to understand the world better from the top.
