Artist-in-Residence: Heidi Norton

Heidi Norton, 2013June 7 to August 24, 2014
Opening Reception: June 6, 6:30 pm
This summer, Chicago-based artist Heidi Norton is producing a multi-part project at EAM consisting of custom-made window panels and sculptural objects using photographs and living plants, interactive hot houses and a site-specific installation in Mies van der Rohe’s McCormick House. Inspired by EAM’s history and Wilder Park setting, its light-filled, glass-enclosed architecture and its relationship to modernism, Norton’s work will fill Hostetler Gallery, the McCormick House and the corridor that links these two prominent, transparent spaces. As EAM’s second artist-in-residence, Norton is developing a rich array of community-oriented public programs focused on planting, landscaping, foraging and ecological conservation in relation to Elmhurst’s own natural history.

LifeLoggers: Chronicling the Everyday

Nathalie Miebach, Hurricane Noel, 2009, Wood, rope, reed, data.May 11 to August 17, 2014

“Lifelogging” is a term used to describe the extensive documentation of one's personal experience. While often used for scientific research and more recently individual health and fitness analysis, the impulse to track, map and graph also animates artistic practice. The 13 artists in this exhibition produce work in a variety of media—from low-tech to high tech—that demonstrates this chronicling impulse, not as an objective record of every second lived, but as a thoughtful and studied approach to revealing the complexities of human existence.
