Plymouth Church in Brooklyn Heights will host local artist-in-residence Paula Jeanine Bennett through March 1, who will display an interactive art and sound installation in the historic church. “The Stolen Thing” will be open to the public on four Sundays: February 9, 16, 23, and March 1. On Sunday, February 16 at 12:30 PM and Sunday, March 1 at 2 PM, curated dance and music performances will explore the themes of the installation—conflict, loss, solitude, hope, mystery of faith, and renewal. Plymouth’s history of social justice work, architecture, and spiritual atmosphere amplify the impact of the installation, which consists of eight embellished panels of photographed poses. Viewers can interact with the art by mirroring each pose and moving from panel to panel, becoming a living part of the installation. Percussion, piano, spoken word, and ambient sound enhance the experience.
