Guadalupe Maravilla makes work that acknowledges the historical and contemporary contexts of immigrant culture, notably belonging to Latinx communities.Artist Bio
Silent Zoomorph is a performance series that will materialize into a film consisting of wearable sculptures, fictionalized rituals and various esoteric forms of spirituality and ancient medicine. The rituals in the film are inspired by the meditations Guadalupe Maravilla underwent while receiving fifty-three sessions of radiation while living with cancer in 2013. Silent Zoomorph will serve as a framework to blur the physical and metaphysical line between the body, sculpture sound and light. Silent Zoomorph will take place in a Central American volcano, an ancient burial site, a contemporary Bolivian vernacular building, a radioactive desert, the Amazon, places of natural phenomenon and in trees where jaguars are born.
