Alberte Tranberg: Laying the Second Brick


In Tranberg’s third project with BULK Space, she will intertwine her works within the framework and history of the former Shilo Tabernacle - setting the stage of a space in still movement. Interfering the natural elements on site gently enhancing a sense of the ever present body.

Delving into the properties of the built environment, Tranberg investigates how we as individuals constitute our presence through interior settings of our homes. Echoing the spiritual bones of BULK Sanctuary, the exhibition will play into our beliefs of safe space. Through material landscape from construction and metalwork, Alberte will queer the imagery of domesticity in a site-specific installation.

The exhibition will be on view through November 13th, each Saturday from 12-3, by appointment only.

About Alberte Tranberg
Alberte Tranberg is an artist from Copenhagen, Denmark. In 2018, Tranberg graduated from Cranbrook Academy of Art with an MFA in Metalsmithing. At Cranbrook she developed her practice by immersing herself in sculpture as an intervention to notions of domesticity and gendered architecture. Having previously worked at a water treatment plant, producing, developing and maintaining plant parts and machinery-Tranberg is a certified metal worker.  Prior to her time at Cranbrook, Tranberg was a metal worker in an all-women’s blacksmith shop; customizing furniture and interior elements mainly in steel. Tranberg is a recipient of a Fulbright sponsorship which has supported her work in the United States. Tranberg currently lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Aiko Fukuchi’s Connection
that carries us
:



Aiko Fukuchi:
Over the past few months, many of us have realized the urgency with which we need to cultivate and strengthen care and interdependence within our communities. With the oncoming of winter, another period of isolation for many of us, I would like to host an outdoor workshop that will use a combination of writing, watercolor, and bookbinding to support cultivating caring relationships between queer people in the Detroit area. The goal of this workshop is to foster new connections for community-building and care to take place between queer people in Detroit. Participants will be asked to bring a book that they have found to be comforting, distracting, or insightful which has supported them through a difficult moment to contribute to a book exchange as part of the workshop. At the end of this workshop, each participant will have created the beginnings for a small care package that will be mailed to them mid-winter as a reminder to continue cultivating these connections, and reflect on the care they may need in that moment.

This workshop will be held on Sunday, September 26th from 2-4:30pm and will take place outside. As of now, masks will be encouraged though not required for vaccinated individuals.

If you would like to participate in Connection that carries us, please fill out a quick 5-minute registration form (link above) and we will send a confirmation e-mail with additional information on the workshop. We can't wait to see you there!



       
This program is supported by The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation as a Knight Arts Challenge Detroit 2019 winning project. BULK Space is a sponsored project of Allied Media Projects.
