GROUNDING, organized by Lydia Cheshewalla and Sarah Rowe, explores reciprocal human and more-than-human kinship systems through acts of somatic co-regulation with place, land, and earth. Introducing ethically sourced soil pigments into the gallery space as a medium to produce body-prints on site, these two artists make visible the often-invisible interdependencies of Indigenous bodies and complex ecosystems. By positing land as body and earth as archive, the exhibition considers soil’s capacity to record the body’s impressions as part of an ancestral lineage of understanding what it means to be in, of, or from a place.
