Project Title: Archive: 165th Street Mall, Jamaica, Queens
Project Description: Anne Wu creates sculptures that reconstruct architectural thresholds and vernacular landscapes to contemplate diasporic histories and communal identity. Wu’s project takes the 165th Street Pedestrian Mall as a site of departure--the Flushing-based artist will enter each store between Jamaica Avenue and 89th Avenue and conduct interviews with store owners and employees. With collective input, Wu will select one item in every location to cast, resulting in a sculptural archive of cast objects and a photographic and narrative inventory of the Mall’s economic microcosm.
