Description

Poet and artist Precious Okoyomon will transform the AAM rooftop, installing a mixture of sculpture and organic matter to create a garden based on themes of pleasure, abundance, and desire. Okoyomon will be in residence in Aspen on multiple occasions, developing and transforming the project over its entire duration, making it a live and responsive commission that will literally grow and replenish over time. Working in collaboration with local growers, Okoyomon’s garden will combine plants traditionally deemed invasive and dangerous with plants indigenous to the region, a juxtaposition which speaks to Okoyomon’s observation of the natural world as itself an object of colonization and enslavement. By combining invasive plants such as kudzu and honeysuckle with indigenous dandelions, mugwort, and milk thistle, Okoyomon will further their ongoing investigation of the racialization of the natural world.
