Latent Teloneum
Heidi Lau and Nikholis Planck
OCTOBER 23rd–December 5th, 11:00am–4:00pm

Fort Hamilton Gatehouse Attic

Since January 2021, Heidi Lau, Green-Wood’s artist in residence, has been creating ceramic sculptures in a studio space on the first floor of the Fort Hamilton Gatehouse. Just above her a large attic sat relatively quiet except for spiders busily weaving their webs. Nearing the end of her residency, Lau has invited Nikholis Planck for a two-person exhibition in the attic, which has been unlocked for the public’s viewing. All of the works on view, like the spiders’ webs, are suspended from the roof’s wooden support beams. The title, chosen by the artists, refers to the hidden costs of the creative process (teloneum is a Medieval word for a tax on the sale of goods).

Free and open to the public, no reservations are necessary. Please consider a donation to The Green-Wood Historic Fund so that we can continue to offer free and low-cost programs throughout the year.

Attendees are asked to use caution when going up and down the stairs. Please do not touch any of the work on view. 

The Fort Hamilton Gatehouse is located near the intersection of Fort Hamilton Parkway and Miceli Place.
