The Rise and Fall of Stone

January 16 @ 12:00 AM

The Rise and Fall of Stone: Works on Becoming
January 4 – February 1, 2020
Art Walk: January 9, 6-8pm
Artist Talk with Klara Glosova: January 18, 12pm

Mya Kerner’s work in this show continues to revolve around ancestral history, storytelling, and ecological concern in an exploration of memory and landscape. Her background in permaculture and a lineage of Eastern European foresters first drove her to explore humanity’s relationship with the natural world through her art practice. More recently, she has expanded on these ideas, reacting to anthropocentrism and a sense of uprootedness, both personal and intergenerational, by studying Earth-based traditions. As she reflects upon stories from the spirits of the land, her own memory, and those of her ancestors, she asks questions about how we relate to place through the lenses of wildness, stewardship, civilization, and change.
