Artist Jake Fernandez to Create in Seclusion for 7 Days, 16 Hours

Maitland, FL (PRWEB) March 17, 2014

Inspired by the torturous conditions Freedom Riders of the 1960s endured when they were jailed at Parchman Farm in Jackson, Mississippi, artist Jake Fernandez will lock himself in a studio at the Art & History Museums - Maitland for 7 days and 16 hours beginning March 23rd. Working with minimal provisions and furnishings, Fernandez is also seeking to explore how sensory deprivation - in this case, no natural light, impacts the creative process.

Entitled La Finca de Parchman, the project will take place in a concrete block space measuring approximately 8 x 12 ft. with no windows and no furniture other than a wooden table and cot. Fernandez will be provided rag drawing paper, conte crayons and pencils for his artwork that he will create during this time.

During Fernandez' seclusion, the space he will be living and working in will be equipped with a camera with which visitors can watch streaming video of his experience. On the 30th, upon conclusion of the experience, the artist will emerge and will answer questions.


La Fince de Parchman is part of Art31, Art & History Museums - Maitland's first annual event featuring a variety of participatory and collaborative art events. More details on Art31 are available on the A&H web site or on Art31.org.
