Sunday, July 15, brings artist Joel Tauber and his film Sick-Amour to the Asheville Art Museum. The documentary begins at 2 PM, followed by a Q&A with the director.
From the press release:
Filmed over the course of five years, Sick-Amour chronicles Tauber’s five-year love affair with a once-beautiful sycamore tree in the parking lot of the Pasadena Rose Bowl, and his quest to revive and protect the tree. The Los Angeles Times describes the film stating that “[Tauber’s] obsession functions as a sort of spotlight, illuminating, through a tree, our dysfunctional relationship with nature”. Tauber lives and works in Winston-Salem, NC, where he is Assistant Professor of Art in New Media at Wake Forest University.
