SALLY CURCIO + ANNE SEUTHE
Antidote: The Heart of the Matter, is Curcio’s and Seuthe’s acknowledgment of the conflicts separating individuals, dividing cities, countries, and nations. This work resulted from the impulse to take action on an individual level. With Antitode, they heed John Lennon’s succinct and eloquent refrain: “Love is the answer”. To this end, they invite the public to be part of the solution by building together an eight-foot-tall inflated pulsing heart sculpture.
Curcio and Seuthe readily acknowledge that the symbol of the heart in contemporary art, outside the likes of Jim Dine, Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst, is considered hackneyed, however for one night, with the help of the public,Curcio and Seuthe will literally and metaphorically breathe new life into this universal symbol of love.
