After three weeks of research, collecting, construction and installation in the CAMPER, Lewis and Taggart successfully completed THE MUSEUM OF BOW. The artists beautifully and poetically connected the stories, information and items they gathered with the sculptural works displayed inside and outside of the CAMPER. The artists Chloe Lewis and Andrew Taggart were on hand throughout the exhibition portion of the residency to give guided tours in the CAMPER, giving viewers one-on-one information and sharing narratives about the Bow. Here are some pictures of the site-specific installation.
