Join the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts for the first of a series of online conversations with I don’t know you like that artists. Over the summer, Buenos Aires-based Celina Eceiza developed an ambitious new site-sensitive installation for the exhibition, drawing, staining, and dying fabric to create a temporary temple of bodies and energies. With this work, her first presentation in the US, Eceiza radically reconfigures in-between spaces—spaces of transit that are often overlooked—into a succession of three rooms.
When Eceiza was unable to obtain a visa to come to Omaha for the exhibition, an alternative strategy was devised. Klaire Lockheart, an accomplished artist from Vermillion, South Dakota, joined us to install the work in close conversation with Eceiza—a four-week herculean endeavor. In this conversation moderated by curator Sylvie Fortin, Eceiza will introduce her practice as she and Lockheart discuss what they learned from each other through this delegated process.
