Norman W. Long: Van Vlissingen Prairie

@ Ignition project space

3839 W Grand Ave, Chicago, IL 60651

Opening Saturday, September 9th, from 5PM - 7PM

On view through Friday, September 29th

Van Vlissingen Prairie are part of a soundtrack for a single channel video installation with projection and speaker placements featuring the sound ecology of Van Vlissingen Prairie within the South Deering community area on the Southside Chicago. South Deering is majority African-American and Latinx. This soundtrack questions the notion of what a Black Community sounds like and what a community is. These videos challenge notions of landscape by bypassing the pictorial and the beautiful, defining landscape as a complex matrix of networks and systems.
