Erika DeFreitas investigates ideas of absence, loss, and memorialization through textile-based practices, and performative actions that are photographed, reaching for ways to make the impermanent permanent, or to engage in ritualistic acts with the hopes of regaining what is lost.

SUNG FROM THE MOUTH OF CUMAE

 

 

This immersive fibre, ceramic and sound installation references the Cumean Sibyl, a Greek oracle who was said to have sung prophecies from the mouth of a cave. Using destructive processes on woven textiles, Grisey evokes the effects of time and decay on landscape, history and mythology.

 

TWEETGARDEN

 

 

 

Tweetgarden is an online, interactive installation in which participants turn private confessions and thoughts into a public artwork. Trees have been sites for people to gather and connect throughout history and mythology in cultures around the world; in Tweetgarden, watch a virtual tree grow – online and in the gallery - as participants share their thoughts, wishes and confessions.
