Anna Tsouhlarakis: Edges of the Ephemeral

Anna Tsouhlarakis: Edges of the Ephemeral

Edges of the Ephemeral is an installation reflecting upon interpretations of the Navajo creation story and place within our current domain — the fourth world.  Through a minimalist lens, the site-specific work is a spatial construction of reality and myth that converge at moments of pause where text and object illustrate predictions of the Navajo future.  Tsouhlarakis’ materials suggest a hindered return to the natural while her palette subtly evokes the industrial. The project is part of the TIME or Temporary Installations for the Environment project sponsored by New Mexico Arts.
