"Bienvenidos:Portal Portraits" Reception
Sunday, May 21, 2pm-5pm
Location: Brick Haus, 215 S Woodrow Ln, Denton, TX 76205
YOU are invited to to interact with "Bienvenidos:Portal Portraits" by naturally dyeing ceremonial flags with indigo. The ceremonial flags will hang on multiple dry lines that run through "Bienvenidos: Portal Portraits" and collectively will serve to act as a ritualistic celebration of movement and immigration.
Our featured outdoor installation at the Brick Haus, "Bienvenidos: Portal Portraits" explores ideas of immigration, personal landscape and domesticidad along the frontera of Texas and Mexico. With the use of hand netted tunnel forms and natural dyed cloth, Tierra Firme suggests movement from a space of dried land to a place of plentiful botanical liquid.
