Sharing reaches new heights in Your Turn, a site-specific installation on view through April 22 at the in Ridgefield, Connecticut. It’s the work of and , who build what Schweder calls “performance architecture” and then become the artists-in-residence. In this instance, they’ve cut a 23-foot-square partition out of architectural-grade plywood, attached orderly rows of steel rungs to each side, and fabricated six “amenities” that slide through to be used: lounge chair, dining table, desk, bed, kitchen, and composting toilet. From November 30 to December 2 and again from December 7 to 9, the men will be on-site, with Schweder living on one side of the partition and Shelley on the other.
