Curated by Paloma Mayorga, Yo trabajo con la tierra / I work with the earth features five women artists that explore movement and place in relation to landscape, geological bodies, and other nonhuman intelligences. Using their own body as medium, the artists share ecofeminist sensibilities through video, installation, sculpture, photography, and performance works.
The title of this exhibition recalls an interview by Ana Mendieta, where she begins describing her Silueta Series with the phrase, “I work with the earth, with nature, and I make sculptures in the landscape, in the environment outside.” Her sentiment evokes a collaborative relationship with nature and offers a lens shared by the exhibiting artists.
This exhibition aims to reveal marginalized perspectives in the environmental movements prompting a sense of kinship to the earth, and consequently, a more compassionate understanding of ourselves and each other.
Melissa Aguirre, Alexa Capareda, Paloma Mayorga, Virginia Lee Montgomery (VLM), and Alejandra Regalado
