MILL ROAD | Performance and exhibition
On the night of October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy reached New York City and pushed seawater across the country. The Oakwood Beach neighborhood on Staten Island was almost completely destroyed. For one night, the Atlantic conquered the salt marshes back to Mill Road, which is the northern boundary of Oakwood Beach. Last year, Birgit Rathsmann and Rick Karr explored the social and natural history of the region - and considered the ecosystem of salt marshes along the south coast of Staten Island. Mill Road (Drowned Landscape) is the result. Along the way, the artists encountered New York's official state fossil, a map of a cartographer showing streets that never existed, a glacier with the soul of a classic Hollywood lead actress (and her daughter, the flood) and the immortal judge Emil R. Fuchs of Manhattan, entrepreneur of the swamp. In Mill Road, their stories intertwine in performance, video, music and installation. Rathsmann and Karr explored their first drowned landscapes in their work Malpaso (2019), in collaboration with Alejandro Almanza Pereda. You studied a river valley in Chiapas, Mexico, where hundreds of archaeological sites of the Olmeks ? and an early Spanish colonial church ? have disappeared under the water of a hydropower reservoir.
