GHP Resident Artist August 26  October 18, 2019

Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to announce Sindy Butz as our Resident Artist from August 26 to October 18, 2019.

Sindy Butz is an interdisciplinary visual artist and butoh dancer based in New York who creates conceptual endurance performances, multimedia installations, performance-based video sculptures and environmental fragrance projects. Butz approaches her work from an experimental self-psychoanalytical perspective, aiming to study behavior, awareness, intergenerational trauma, sociopolitical transformation, and the collective unconscious.

Butz was born in the communist German Democratic Republic and raised in the suburbs of East Berlin. She has an MFA in art in context from the University of the Arts Berlin and a BFA in sculpture from AKI-ARTez Netherlands. Her work has been presented at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (New York, NY; 2018); Sunroom Project Space, Wave Hill (New York, NY; 2017); Queens Museum (New York, NY; 2015); Brooklyn Museum (New York, NY; 2014); Museum der Dinge (Berlin, Germany; 2009); among others.

As a resident at the Pottery, Butz will be developing an olfactory-based sculptural ceramic installation that will help observers explore the complex terrain of human emotion by using scent to access hidden or deeply buried feelings. Sindy Butz’s residency will run from August 26 to October 18, 2019.

Our residencies foster an artist’s development by providing time, space and material in the center of the art world. The resident has access to a private studio space (20’ x 17’) during the Pottery’s regular business hours, free stocked clay and access to gas and electric firings. 

Greenwich House Pottery, a non-profit (501c3) organization, is New York City’s premier ceramic facility. Originally founded in 1909 to teach immigrants a marketable skill in the spirit of the Arts & Crafts Movement, the Pottery is now an arts center for the local and international community that strives to support the history and future of the ceramic arts through its educational facilities, artist residency and gallery.
