Envisioned by DC-based Japanese-Korean immigrant artist Naoko Wowsugi with non-profit Enough Pie, a 10-day mushroom-themed installation (Thursday, March 14th – Saturday, March 23rd) is a collaboration with local artists and collaborators in Charleston’s Upper Peninsula. "In THE FUNGUS AMONG US, we not only learn amazing facts about mushrooms, we also learn about the amazing people in our community," says Wowsugi, who has been working with the concept of food as art and art as food for many years.

Join your community in a mycelium-focused immersive art experience, being created to illustrate the healing powers of mushrooms, their hidden qualities that affect human systems, and how interconnected they are, much like our neighborhoods and communities. 

"I believe that we are all connected and I appreciate work that addresses the inter connectivity of people. My work is interactive, experiential; I am drawn to an immersive experience for all." - Mikki Blackman, Fiber Artist.

THE FUNGUS AMONG US: Our Mycelium Connection is part of Enough Pie’s AWAKENING: NOURISH, a series of artworks and events showcasing creative ways to nurture ourselves and our communities through food, stories, and artistic expression in Charleston’s Upper Peninsula. Throughout this installation, Naoko Wowsugi will be participating in Redux's new Visiting Artist Pilot Program, working out of Redux during her short-term residency in Charleston actively engaging with studio artists and the Upper Peninsula community.

Tales From The Manor Article

TALES FROM THE MANOR

We frequently host programs at Joseph Floyd Manor, and have heard so many fascinating stories from community elders over the years.  After kicking the idea around for a while, we teamed up with Ohm Radio to sit down and record these important stories of the lives of residents, who have lived in Charleston for decades.

Check out our recently launched storytelling series, Tales from the Manor, which introduces listeners to JFM residents. Tales From the Manor is hosted by Charleston resident and creative Summer Anderson and JFM case intake specialist Jae Smith. Episodes air bi-monthly on Ohm Radio 96.3, Wednesdays at 1 p.m. and on Sundays at 3 p.m and past episodes can be listened to any time on the Enough Pie SoundCloud page.
