Captured: Installing Jason Middlebrook’s Underlife

Jason Middlebrook is currently at the Albright-Knox installing his work Underlife, 2012–13, on the east side of the Gallery's grounds. Underlife is a large-scale sculpture created in response to the existing Frederick Law Olmsted–designed landscape that surrounds the Gallery’s campus. Initially inspired by a tree that the artist uprooted on his property in downstate New York, it features a complex root system that has been dramatically lifted from the soil and propped on root ends.
