For this 'Artists at Work,' ISCP artist-in-residence Claudine Arendt will be in conversation with curator Jess Wilcox about her wide range of sculptural projects inspired by scientific data, human behavior, and the natural world. Among the works discussed will be Arendt’s large scale outdoor fountain 'Ahead of Time, The Times Ahead,' which squirts water spray out of noses that are attempting to hold in sneezes as an absurdist tribute to the social faux pas of the Covid-19 pandemic, and 'Through a porcelain cast,' a set of vessels in the shape of the sound waves made by microscopic sea creatures known as zooplankton, that has chaetognaths, salps, medusae, euphasiid, appendicularian and copepods shaping and adorning espresso cups, beer glasses, ketchup-dippers and whipped cream holders.

Claudine Arendt is an artist from Luxembourg based in Amsterdam. Her work explores the potential of materials and non-human animals. She creates large-scale pieces and installations and is interested in viewers’ interaction with them.

Jess Wilcox is an independent curator. She was Curator and Director of Exhibitions at Socrates Sculpture Park from 2016 to 2022, where she curated several group and solo exhibitions of works by Helio Oiticica and Guadalupe Maravilla, among others, as well as the Socrates Annual exhibitions.

This program is supported, in part, by the Edward Steichen Award Luxembourg; New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; New York City Council District 34; New York State Council on the Arts and the New York State Legislature; The Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation; and William Talbott Hillman Foundation.
