About

The artists in “No Country is an Island” grapple with questions of freedom in its various guises, beginning with the simple care of the self as a practice (anethic) of freedom. For instance, some of the artists use ritual as a spiritually and culturally grounding exercise. Their work engages ritual in imaging new relationships between the body and the soil: hypothesizing the body’s variable locations in relation to the land from which it materially and spiritually springs. In all instances, the art-making process itself becomes another event in the self-grounding performance of ritual-another occasion among the rites of self-emergence.
