Art on Fire

Usually a force of destruction, fire will now be given its chance to create in Cary.

A unique art form has been taking shape in Downtown Cary for the last few weeks. Danish artist Nina Hole has teamed with other ceramic enthusiasts to build a sculpture that will be lit on fire in order to transform the piece from three tons of clay to a permanent brick installation.

The piece is located at Cary’s Performance Green, an open space across from the Cary Arts Center at the intersections of S. Academy Street, Dry Avenue, and Kildaire Farm Road.

Hole arrived in Cary on Oct. 15 and has been working on the sculpture since then. The sculpture will burn today, with a dramatic reveal scheduled for Friday, Nov. 2, at 10 p.m., free and open to the public.
