Feldsott's provocative installation piece, My Enemy, will be prominently displayed at the 2015 Bioneers Conference. The conference is a variety of speakers and workshops focused on practical and visionary solutions for humanity's most pressing environmental and social challenges.
My Enemy consists of five-foot tall painted silhouettes, kneeling and handcuffed, apparently awaiting execution. Alongside them stand figures of monks aflame, recalling the protesters who self-immolated in Saigon and Tibet. The backdrop is a series of metal plates bearing words in many languages such as: Father, Lover, Sister, Brother, Mother, Friend, Daughter, Son. Visitors will be encouraged to paint images of their own adversaries on blank wooden birds, adding their voices, prayers, or outcries to the sculpture. These painted birds are then hung above the installation piece, becoming one with Feldsott's work.
We encourage you to stop by and visit My Enemy and paint a bird, sending a prayer to your enemy.
