Tyree Guyton Heidelberg Project | Heidelbergology; 2+2=8
Installation. Vote Code: 67951
The point of departure for “Heidelbergology; 2 + 2 = 8”, is the “Obstruction of Justice House” (OJ) located at The Heidelberg Project in Detroit. Undertaken by Guyton from 1995 to 2000, its history makes it a particularly suitable choice for the first “Heidelberg 3.0.” off-site exhibition. In 2013, this structure was the first of several targeted by arsonists at the site. Twice it was set ablaze, and twice Guyton rebuilt upon the charred remains. He called the new work, “A New Beginning”, which remains a poignant example of the resilient tenacity that inspired Guyton to reclaim his Detroit neighborhood over thirty years ago.
