Antidote: A Photoluminescent Photographic Installation

Antidote is a single photographic image - composed from hundreds to form one transformative, life-sized magical garden.  Judy Haberl spent several months photographing at the Green Animals Topiary garden, which is part of the Newport Mansions Preservation Society, in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. The idea of a "heroic" scale is important for her in the realization of this piece, fueled by encountering certain works where an epic scale was integral to the phenomenology of the work: (Claude Monet’s- Water Lilies, The Rothko Chapel, Thomas Demand’s photos.)

She bears witness. The lettering in her wings is a reference to the inscription above the entrance gates at Auschwitz, 
Arbeit Macht Frei ("Work Will Set You Free"). Tod Macht Frei means "Death Will Set You Free".
