In Columbia, SC, on Tuesday, June 26, USC Professor and artist, Virginia Scotchie, presented a performance piece of her mixed media sculptural work, The Seven Deadly Sins. This “Moving Exhibition” started at McMaster College on the USC campus, 1615 Senate Street, at 5:30 and ended at the Five Points at 631-D Harden Street, in front of Gallery V.
Scotchie’s work, consists of 7 shopping carts, each containing objects including animal forms and found objects. The contents of each shopping cart have been case in porcelain and cement. The carts and objects they contain are interpretations by the artist of the Seven Deadly Sins. Each cart was pushed by a student from USC on a 2 mile walk, from McMaster College to the Five Points intersection of Harden and Devine Street.
The performance art piece was in Five Points by the Hootie and the Blow Fish Sculpture, in front of Gallery V and was also televised on WOLO ABC Columbia Tuesday evening at 11pm.
