Angels

Reposting:

 Angels In Straight Jackets  is a multi-media installation that will feature sound, performance, projection and video centered on three textile- based mixed media sculptures. It is a collaboration of three artists and scholars: mixed media artist and “visual mythographer” Lynn Marshall Linnemeier, of Atlanta, scholar Mab Segrest, Fuller-Maathai Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies at Connecticut College in New London, and Shani Collins, Professor of Dance and Movement at Connecticut College. The goal of installation is to examine the ancestral memory of patients and personnel who lived and worked at Central State Hospital in Milledgeville, Georgia. The hospital once one of the largest and oldest asylums in the world housed thousands of patients in this asylum and later prison that was the capital of Georgia during the Civil War.  The goal is to examine the hospital through the lens of community memory and an exhibition to be held at Georgia College and State University also located in Milledgeville.
