Redux: Stripes for St. Joseph (2016)

Nick Kline and Amy Goldrich

Redux is a single artwork in two different ArtPrize venues -- Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park and Site:Lab’s Rumsey Street Project – connecting two very different Grand Rapids neighborhoods. Redux builds on Stripes for St. Joseph, Nick Kline's 2015 Installation and Juror's Shortlist nominee, in which he used the boards of the former Catholic church St. Joseph the Worker to create stripes around its exterior and interior. The artwork’s inclusive nature elicited the immediate community’s concern and uncertainty about the structure’s and neighborhood’s future due to impending development. In 2016, Kline and partner Amy Goldrich expand focus to explore the state of limbo in which the neighborhood still finds itself. Redux realizes a year-long co-creation process with Roosevelt Park neighborhood residents. The installation includes old church pews and lights (used here in the condition in which the artists found them), wall drawings, and portraits of local “leaders without titles.”
