SITElab 15: Joanna Keane Lopez: Land Craft Theatre
On view through Jan, 9, 2022
An intimate dialogue between artist and material, Land Craft Theatre enriches the viewer’s understanding of land-sourced materials, such as adobe and botanical dyes and brings each aspect of the creative process into focus. Comprising two large-scale sculptural installations (adobe and paper), Keane Lopez incorporates plant and insect dyes, land-sourced colored clays, and hand-harvested aliz (a traditional clay plaster) from New Mexico.
Oswaldo Maciá: New Cartographies Of Smell Migration | Santa Fe
On view through Oct, 31, 2021
Set among hand painted maps annotated with notes on the cultural history and biological role of smell, this olfactory-acoustic sculpture diffuses the fragrance of tree resins sourced from forests in El Salvador and Honduras. These resins have played major cultural, religious, and medicinal roles among Indigenous peoples of the Americas since time immemorial, and have been exported globally since the 16th century. The accompanying audio sculpture features a blend of sounds including wind recorded in various deserts around the world and insects from the Choco region rainforests of Colombia.
