Axle Contemporary at 8 Modern

I Am Animal, Vegetable, Mineral

Opening: Friday August 12th, 5-8 pm at Axle Contemporary’s mobile gallery
in front of Eight Modern, 231 Delgado Street, Santa Fe

Ancient wisdom and contemporary science indicate that we are not separate from, but are in fact completely at one with the entirety of the world around us. The artists in this exhibition express this reciprocal and dynamic identity, finding the human skin but a thin and fragile barrier.  For thousands of years, humans have expressed the ability to transform into bears and trees and mountains.  These artists continue in a long tradition that has spanned cultures and continents. They visually proclaim I am animal, I am vegetable,  I am mineral.
