Understory/Overstory is the artist’s second iteration of this large-scale sculptural installation. It consists of found and altered trees and black ceramic birds that alight in branches and rise in a murmuration on the gallery walls. The title refers to the ecological relationship between upper and lower forest vegetation that expresses the diversity, composition, and structure of the ecosystem.
Dreya Weber is an accomplished performer, choreographer, writer, and aerialist. She will be collaborating with Helena performers on a reimagined version of her celebrated, L.A. Dance Chronicle-reviewed “Witch Piece” in response to her sister Cathy Weber’s exhibition.
