FOUND ARTIST (Tova Rogers)

Last November my wife and I bopped over to Cranbrook Art Museum to check out Space is the Place--a traveling exhibition dealing with outer space. Walked into one of the galleries and noticed a chalked off square on the floor with someone standing in it. Sensing a game, I checked it out. Occupant of the chalk square turned out to be a Crankbrook MFA sculpture student. She was doing her own renegade installation/performance at the opening: creating and occupying "space."

Had occasion recently to spend some time with the artist, Tova Rogers, and find out more about her work. I discovered a lot of smart Fluxus sensibility (like I saw in the chalk performance). I'll give you one other example, and then maybe I can coax her on here to present some of her other stuff.
