Mona Gazala

"Leveled" is an homage to the Hawkes Avenue flats, a row of nondescript brick apartments that once stood across the street from Gladden Settlement House in Franklinton. My relationship with the life and death of these particular flats is multi-faceted and has spawned multiple projects. I had been through them in 2013 when they were being gutted and prepared for renovation. At that time, I collected artifacts for other work, and facilitated the use of the empty space by an OSU sculpture class headed by Carmel Buckley, for a group installation. Later, the flats were unceremoniously torn down, leaving a large, empty lot. This piece was both a performance on location - building a pyramid of levels on the place of the leveled homes - and also recreated as an assemblage at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center in 2016.
