HYBYCOZO | Sculpture in the Stratosphere: Maker Culture and Public Art as Social Practice
05:30 PM, June 1, 2023 | Woolsey Hall/Wichita State University
Join us for an artist talk with HYBYCOZO, a collaborative installation art collective made up of Serge Beaulieu and Yelena Filipchuk. Their sculpture Stratosphere was the most recent piece to join the Martin H. Bush Outdoor Sculpture Collection in the fall of 2022.
HYBYCOZO’s work consists of larger-than-life sculptures that celebrate the inherent beauty of geometric form and pattern, and compose them in ways that harmonize the experience of sculpture, light, and shadow. Much of their work draws on inspirations from mathematics, science, and patterns in nature and acknowledges diverse cultural influences in pattern making and design. They seek to create public art that creates a sense of place and invites wonder and curiosity not only about the elemental geometric forms used to compose their sculptures but also in the technological processes used to create them. We'll meet for a reception at Woolsey Hall at 5:30 p.m. The program will begin at 6 p.m. This event is free and everyone is welcome.
