The OAF 2018 Curated Space, organized by contemporary artist Saya Woolfalk, will be a response with her own work to Eddie Owens Martin's (aka St. EOM) visionary environment Pasaquan, which he conceived in rural Georgia as a personal utopia, where all cultures and ethnic groups come together, connecting with the earth and the universe. As an artist who uses science fiction and mythology as tools for thinking about the world, Woolfalk is drawn to St. EOM's approach to place-building. Through her installation, which will include original furniture from St. EOM’s reading parlor and an astrologer performing readings in the space, Woolfalk hopes to evoke a similar, culturally resistant mythology.
