  • but when you come from water...

    but when you come from water...

    Honored to have work included in
    but when you come from water... The Chapter House LA

    A rallying cry of Indigenous Peoples, and a plain and simple fact. But what exactly does it mean to come from water? In her poem Atlas, where this exhibition draws its title from, Terisa Siagatonu ponders the realities of being from Sāmoa, an island in the South Pacific, very often overlooked on maps, and that is victim to colonization, tourism, and American military imperialism. For Siagatonu, water is the place she is from, in part because it threatens to overtake what little land makes up Sāmoa, but also because the ocean’s vastness is easier to see than the island.

    As water surrounds her homelands, how might water shape other places we are from? From the Navajo Nation to sub-Saharan Africa to California, water scarcity, the lack of running water, and drought make everyday tasks and health a challenge. On the other hand, abundance of water, like post-Hurricane Katrina or the Kiribati Islands threaten to swallow the very existence of a physical space. In both instances of too little or too much water, water structures our homes, physical and mental health, and lives.

    In The Chapter House’s inaugural online exhibition but when you come from water, artists contributed works that consider water as a material, medium, inspiration, and something to fight for. This exhibition is specifically inspired by the work of Emma Robbins, The Chapter House’s Founder and Executive Director of the Navajo Water Project. In conjunction with World Water Day and in collaboration with DigDeep, but when you come from water explores interpretations of water in artistic form from artists from across the world.

    Virtual Reception March 5! Register Here

    Reciprocity is a relation of mutual dependence, action or influence. With the year being what it is, reciprocal relationships have become integral to how we live and create. In photography, reciprocity refers to the relationship between the aperture (f-stop) and shutter speed, which works dependently and inversely to capture light. It is the key to the perfect exposure. This show is an exploration of relationships. All artwork was created in collaboration.
    This exhibition includes 21 woman-identified and non-binary artist pairs anchored in photography and image-based practices and considers the reciprocal relationship between each pair.
    Join us on March 05, Friday evening for a virtual reception on our Youtube channel as we unveil the show at Woman Made Gallery, meet the curators and 4 artists from the show. Register Here
