Since January 2021, Heidi Lau, Green-Wood’s artist in residence, has been creating ceramic sculptures in a studio space on the first floor of the Fort Hamilton Gatehouse. Just above her a large attic sat relatively quiet except for spiders busily weaving their webs. Nearing the end of her residency, Lau has invited Nikholis Planck for a two-person exhibition in the attic, which has been unlocked for the public’s viewing. All of the works on view, like the spiders’ webs, are suspended from the roof’s wooden support beams. The title, chosen by the artists, refers to the hidden costs of the creative process (teloneum is a Medieval word for a tax on the sale of goods).
