On the second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast, I talk with Kansas City-based artist A. Bitterman, who is currently in residence at Indy Island, Andrea Zittel’s live-in sculpture in the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s 100 Acres sculpture park. His project there is titled “Indigenous: Out of the Wild with A. Bitterman” and has a fantastic website.
Bitterman’s piece is intended to point out how manufactured and guided our relationship with wilderness actually is. He has set up a situation by which visitors to the IMA’s 100 Acres watch him, even interact with him as if he was an animal in nature. He explains the project more thoroughly on this week’s MAN Podcast!
