ley lines
Fall exhibition at The Wassaic Project
with Sabrina Barrios, Kat Clear and Colin Radcliffe
October 7–December 16, 2017

ABOUT :
Ley lines are ancient paths in the landscape that are believed to have spiritual significance. Viewers will follow a path throughout the ground floor of the Mill that will lead to all of the pieces created by the three artists. The works of art showcased will offer a look into what these dimensions may look like. With their works, the artists look to ask the question, “Could these otherworldly spaces and places exist alongside our everyday watching us as they remain unseen?” The artwork displayed will offer a unique viewing experience.

About_
The Earth Experiment combines ancient knowledge with conspiracy theories. I’m looking into Maya, Egyptian and Sumerian cultures, Greek mythology and internet whistleblowers who claim to have worked at CERN and have hidden information on NASA’s secret space programs. I’m also referring to Plato’s allegory of the cave when including the observer’s shadows in the work.

There are many layers of information attached to this piece. I use visually simple symbols (sacred geometry) to tell a story, but they are charged with meaning, and if you see the work in the flesh, if you are present, you FEEL it (I like to compare it to a dream, in which you can’t always verbalize your experiences, but you often remember their feeling).

Overall, I can say that The Earth Experiment places the viewer inside a matrix (or a bubble), that depicts a dome of invisible energy and represents the reality in which we are stuck in. We perceive nothing outward this one dimension. Outside of this bubble (and out of our reach) there are floating hieroglyphics that make up a totem (or an obelisk), that is a symbol of power and points to the ones in charge, the ones that control the rest of the world. Because whoever controls the information that comes to us, well, controls us.

A 2 part installation separated in space. They depict a bridge in time, connecting 2016 to 1964. These dates marked the end of democracy in Brazil, destroyed by a coup d’etat.

Part 2 on view at Snug Harbor Cultural Center (Staten Island, NY) from June 11th to September 11th, 2016.

The Horse Rider and the Eagle

The Horse Rider and the Eagle (Brussels, 2016) is the second chapter of a larger multimedia site-specific installation that depicts a hidden dimension in space, lead by matriarchy.

The viewer is invited to participate in the work of art and to experience each piece with their bodies, while gathering clues to understand the narrative in its totality.
