Project Details

Like life itself, testsite's latest project, Doug Fitch's From A Life to An Other, opens with the glow of a dramatic birth and ends with an eerie specter of death. Invited by guest curator Dana Friis-Hansen to create an installation that sheds light on his creative process, the New York-based Fitch, whose works range from puppetry and furniture design to opera and community food events, will assemble objects, tableaux and storyboards from previous works that trace the twists and turns of life's journey. Fitch's peripatetic imagination produces scenarios of wild wit, stirring melodrama, haunting allegories and everyday joy that tap into the epic drive to understand our world through stories.

Special thanks to Carrie Sealey-Morris and Craig Newswanger.
