Erika Zekos: It's time sculpture. Opening reception

September 23, 2023, 12:00pm – 2:00pm

Dear friends,
Celebrate fall equinox by joining us for the Opening Reception of the Erika Zekos’ It’s time site specific sculpture at TurnPark Art Space!

Light refreshments and drinks will be served

'It’s Time' is a site-specific outdoor artwork by Erika Zekos installed at TurnPark. It is a solar clock – a flat, vertical surface with a series of horizontal projections that act as gnomons. Text becomes legible as the sun moves throughout the day and seasons and the cast shadows move over the face of the work. The orientation of the piece and length of the gnomons are calculated based on the geographic location so that the shadows align vertically with marks painted on the surface to spell “IF NOT NOW WHEN” at solar apex each day, with the shadow lengths aligning on the autumnal equinox (September 23rd).
Erika’s multi-disciplinary practice uses art, graphic design, and architecture to explore a variety of themes, including the relationship between design and placemaking, as well as strategies for meaningful community engagement. She uses the creative process to give a voice to communities and landscapes impacted by design through site-specific installations and hands-on projects
