Sited on a lake that is shared by both Skowhegan’s residency program and the local Maine town, Common Ground evokes the traditional ice house of the locals while shifting the viewer’s relationship to site, creating something new. At the end of the residency, the work was gifted to a local resident of the lake; their use of the structure continues the story of the work, further threading together these adjacent narratives.
