In the project Island Universe, following the ancient Chinese notion of the five main elements of nature (fire, earth, water, metal, and wood), a group of artists was invited to explore elements of Governors Island: Water, Wind, Light, (Is)land, and People. Transforming the rooms, stairways, and hallways of a house into a series of installations, photo/video presentations, sculptures, murals, and performances, artists broadened the elements of Governors Island to range from its recreational present to the visible landscapes and landmarks in the collective memory of the city’s past. Island Universe invites reflection on the environment of the island and its history, provokes questions about the relationship between the people and nature, and elicits personal memory to form into a narrative within the framing structure of the island. The exhibition Island Universe explores the distinct characteristics of Governors Island, once nearly forgotten by the city’s citizens, which now provide a canvas and space for leisure, memory, reflection and creative transformation. Along with New York based artists, the exhibition presents a documentation of elements related art by artists from around the globe.
