Ackroyd & Harvey  

A time-based installation which poignantly evoked a promise of both regeneration and loss.
Two figures cast in seedling grass, lay in adjacent display cabinets in a vacant store-front in the central shopping area of Chicago. Over a period of eight weeks passer's by were able to witness the bodies as they became animated by the growing grass before they eventually dried and decayed.

Mort Cooper disused store-front, 151.N State Street, Chicago. Commissioned by Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, Public Art Programme. Presented simultaneously with Supernatural (after Piero di Cosimo) at the Yates Gallery, Chicago
