The quiet in the land: everyday contemporary life, contemporary art and the Shakers

Artists’ residency and exhibition organized by France Morin in collaboration with the United Society of Shakers, Sabbathday Lake, Maine. Original residency May 28 through July 2, 1996

The quiet in the land was an unusual Art Project in which ten contemporary artists had the privilege of living and working together with the only existing Shaker community in the United States.

After reflecting on the experience, I decided to create an installation which involved my feeling about their dining room. It was the most memorable place for me.

Whatever I touched and wherever I looked held the beautiful history of their existence. I wanted to express my appreciation, and to celebrate their lives through the piece.
