Forest Park Forest Zoo
Amy O'Neill, 2008
Apr 1, 2008–Apr 30, 2008
A nostalgic look at rural culture, Amy O’Neill’s Forest Park Forest Zoo takes its name from a once-popular storybook forest and petting zoo in Gallitzen, Pennsylvania. Now deserted and decaying, the quirky-folksy-kitschy buildings (a shoe house, a candy-striped barn, a crooked house) conjure memories of a simpler time before the corporatization of American culture and entertainment. Forest Park Forest Zoo is produced by Anna Sanders, Paris, and was edited in the Art & Technology studio. (8 mins., 16mm transferred to video)

Amy O’Neill lives and works in New York. Her work has been shown at galleries and museums in Europe and America including, most recently, the Sculpture Center in New York, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and MAMCO (Musée d'Art Moderne et Contemporain) in Geneva.
