Southern Oracle: We Will Tear the Roof Off at NCMA
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until October 31, 2019
Hart’s site-specific work for the Museum Park, Southern Oracle: We Will Tear the Roof Off, is inspired by her family history in North Carolina and by the song “Mothership Connection” by Parliament-Funkadelic, the project of North Carolina native George Clinton.
The sculpture is intentionally open, welcoming visitors to climb on and explore the roof’s exterior, while the interior provides space for thoughtful engagement, conversations, and interactions.
Visitors will be invited to “plug in” to the Oracle by connecting a mobile device to a speaker hidden in the work. In addition Hart will collaborate with local artists and others to activate Southern Oracle with public programs and performances during the six months the work is on view.
