Lawndale Regional Wilderness Zone • Elizabeth Eicher & Hélène Schlumberger
Mary E. Bawden Sculpture Garden

Elizabeth Eicher and Hélène Schlumberger present Lawndale Regional Wilderness Zone, a playful interpretation of the structures, signage and pedagogy popularized by the National Parks Service. The installation transforms the Mary E. Bawden Sculpture Garden into a natural and cultural reserve. From the installation, the visitors can enjoy the scenic vistas offered by the rugged and inspirational surrounding terrain. Eicher & Schlumberger compare modes of observation between the art world and the National Park Service explaining that, “In our tower, the assumptive cultural qualities that put nature and culture in opposition to each other manifest as a battleground for those two modes of seeing to combat and merge, both victorious.”
