Event Navigation

Sindy Butz will give a talk about the work she has been developing during her residency at Greenwich House Pottery.

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, inter-generational 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 developed 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.

Seats are limited.
Please register to RSVP.
This event is free and open to the public.
