American, born 1969
Fritz Haeg explores the uses and identities of public and private space through community-based projects involving land, animals, structures, and people. His Edible Estates project transformed the front lawns of suburban residences into productive vegetable gardens; Animal Estates, his follow-up project, is composed of habitats for animals displaced by human activity. Its first iteration, Animal Estates 1.0, was featured in the 2008 Whitney Biennial. In 2010 Haeg was awarded the Prix de Rome, which provides a fellowship to the American Academy in Rome.
