Interactive Sculptures by Liz Nurenberg
Liz Nurenberg’s research and practice focuses on touch and relationships. She creates objects that explore themes of intimacy, awkwardness, and personal space by facilitating physical interactions. Participants can use or inhabit the pieces, making their bodies integral to the sculptural outcome.
For this installation, inspiration was taken from the landscape and the history of Helena’s Last Chance Gulch. The serendipity of gold being discovered after a last chance stroke of luck, infuses the town with wonder. Her work strives to use both wonder and chance to create new possibilities between participants, as well as between the objects that connect them.

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.
