In response to the history of cSPACE Eau Claire as the former offices and vault for the Eau Claire & Bow River Lumber Company, we invite artists & sculptors to join us in crafting a collaborative interlocking lumber sculpture. We will provide lumber, and artists will create sculptures following (and breaking) any conventions they desire, with the caveat that their work must, at some point, intersect with the sculptures around them. You may choose to work collaboratively, or design a piece by yourself, but the object of the experiment is to link the pieces together into one, giant, growing, organic structure – in a futile effort to reanimate the wood and keep it alive.
At the summary of the exhibition, all wood will be repurposed for future projects.
This event was inspired in part by Khalid Omokanye’s socially distanced collaborative sculpture, ISOLATED BABEL, for The Hibernation Project 2021.
Let us know if you want to participate!

The Hibernation Project is an art intervention occurring annually from Winter to Spring. A tool for embracing – and combating – Winter in Canada, each weekend an open community of artists, musicians, and participants respond to a theme, creating new work around the topic, led by local artists Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett.
