New Laumeier Exhibit Explores Culture of Nature and Collecting

    Laumeier Sculpture Park presents “Mark Dion: Follies”. Mark Dion has fashioned a world-wide reputation as an innovative sculptor and installation artist whose points of departure include the intersections of the historical and the contemporary, as well as the man-made and natural worlds. “Mark Dion: Follies” presents many of the artist’s architectural works, ranging from hunting blinds and storage sheds to mobile carts and shacks. These structures serve as fictitious bases for the enjoyment of nature and the study of natural specimens by scientists, botanists and naturalists. Visitors will also experience “The Memory Box”, a shed filled with dozens of keepsake objects stored in individual containers.
