State of the Art

Pittsburgh Artist Vanessa German

The curators travel to Pittsburgh and the Art House, home of artist Vanessa German. She presents her spoken word performance, “If My Hands Were Anything Other Than Hands.” She then takes the curators to her studio and explains her sculpting process – which involves reconfiguring dolls and wrapping them like mummies to create a solid figure – and the mindset that led to one of her sculptures.
