Athena LaTocha has embraced geological materials from mesas, wetlands and bluffs in her large-scale works. Now, she’s exploring what’s underfoot in New York City.The New York Times

Acclaimed artist Athena LaTocha’s large-scale installation explores the history of Green-Wood’s landscape as one of continuous movement and alteration, and invites us to consider the ways we might mourn and memorialize these shifts and changes.

On view in the Historic Chapel and outdoors on Battle Hill, LaTocha’s distinctive sculptures are made from trees that once grew at Green-Wood and have been cloaked in sheets of lead. The work embraces the distinctive character of Green-Wood’s landscape and the roles that both human and natural forces have played in its transformation.

The Remains of Winter is made possible by a grant from The National Endowment for the Arts.

Free and open to the public.
