Misha Kahn: Midden Heap is a fantastical recreation and reassemble of the artist’s finds while scavenging the trash mounds in Dead Horse Bay, the Rockaway.
Kahn’s vision of the trash as a shoreline, was to imagine and recreate it as “the ocean’s natural way of forming or reshaping everything it touches.” Kahn went on to say, “Each piece is part of a landscape I imagine as the earth gets swallowed by the sea. No single object has any specific meaning. It’s all part of a feeling.”
