Residency: March-April 2011
In the tradition of documentary art, such as photography and film, Keisha Luce developed documentary sculpture as a vehicle to explore social, personal and historical issues. Her current work focuses on the citizens that have been shaped and altered physically by war and conflict. Recent projects have brought her to Vietnam to explore the continuing effects of Agent Orange, and to Sierra Leone, West African to document the mass amputations that occurred during the civil war. Luce has been the recipient of a Vermont Studio Center Residency, a Dickey Center for International Understanding Award, an Ella Lyman Cabot Trust Grant, a Reynolds Fellowship, and most recently was awarded a residency at Sculpture Space in Utica, NY.
