Through the art and science of ‘wonder-working’, Thaumaturgy generates an immersive and participatory call to action to fight for the future of our planet’s well being. Animated through the respective artforms of four Indigenous Disabled artists, the four elements of Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water meet at a juncture to story ceremony and sacred space for feeling and healing. Tobacco, Sage, Cedar and Sweetgrass work to resist the formalities of a gallery, giving way to living tableaus that tie together the four elemental installations. In paying homage to the land and the place we call home, we come back to our base teachings of love, respect for the ‘wonders’ of our environment, and the ability each of us has to reshape our future with our own hands.
Thaumaturgy is curated by Jaene F. Castrillon, in partnership with Charles Street Video.
