“Spirit House, Ghosts & Memory” @ Art Center Waco

“Spirit Houses, Ghosts, and Memory” is designed to convert the static nature of the Art Center into a spirit house made of reinterpreted materials from the community’s dynamic past. Intertwining historical artifacts and photographs, found materials, and neon spirit antennae, “Spirit Houses, Ghosts and Memory” evokes memories and feelings in a respectful nod to previous generations.

About the exhibit:

A spirit house is a shrine to the protective spirit of a place, primarily found in Southeast Asia. Artist Ben Livingston brings the spirit house tradition to Art Center Waco with his exhibit “Spirit House, Ghosts, and Memory.” A site-specific, traveling exhibit, “Spirit House, Ghosts, and Memory” is designed to convert the static nature of the Art Center into a spirit house made of reinterpreted materials from the community’s past. Intertwining historical artifacts and photographs, found materials, and neon spirit antennae, “Spirit Houses, Ghosts and Memory” evokes memories and feelings in a respectful nod to previous generations.
