Last year, each visitor leaving Istanbul’s Gallery 5533 received a potted plant. Artist Roberley Bell said to place the plants anywhere in the city and to send her documentation of their travels.
The project, “Paradise Readymade Revisited,” blurred the lines between the indoor gallery and the outside world, between viewer and participant, and between urban and natural, as does the rest of Bell’s work. Bell will teach at the School of Art this season and give a lecture at 7 p.m. tonight in the Hultquist Center.
A sculptor working in mixed media, Bell makes large-scale installations and individual sculptures for indoor and outdoor exhibitions.
