Curated by Sanaz Mazinani

Lo Real Maravilloso is a groundbreaking two-person exhibition by the husband-wife team, artist Jeremiah Barber and writer Ingrid Rojas Contreras. Bridging narrative storytelling with visual art, Rojas and Barber collaborate around themes present in both their works—the absence of the body, extrasensory occurrences in the everyday, memory displaced by time, and the nature of belief. Lo Real Maravilloso is an observational portrayal of fervent belief in dramatically different backgrounds—Rojas’ grandfather was a medicine man in Colombia and Barber’s father was a pastor in the American midwest. Through video, sculpture, and artist books this show features new works and highlights selections from their ten year collaboration.

Lo real Maravilloso es una exposición innovadora por dos personas equipo de marido y mujer, artista Jeremiah Barber y escritora Ingrid Rojas Contreras. Conectando la narración con el arte visual, Rojas y Barber colaboran en torno a temas presentes en ambas sus obras – la ausencia del cuerpo, los sucesos extrasensoriales en lo cotidiano, la memoria desplazada por el tiempo, y la naturaleza de la creencia. Lo real Maravilloso es un retrato observacional de ferviente creencia en dramáticamente diferentes fondos – el abuelo de Rojas era un hombre medicinal en Colombia y el padre de Barber fue un pastor en el medio oeste de Estados Unidos. A través de vídeo, escultura y libros de estos artista, este espectáculo cuenta con nuevas obras y destaca las selecciones de su colaboración de diez años.

Stories By Hand: An Accordion Book-Making Workshop

  • Saturday & Sunday, January 24 & 25, 2015
  • From 1 to 3:30 PM
  • Inti Raymi Gallery

Instructors: Ingrid Rojas Contreras and Jeremiah Barber

Create an accordion book that explores your heritage through writing and visual storytelling. In every family there are one (or several) stories about strange coincidences, stories of eerie chance or luck, destiny, signs, and foreshadowing. Commonly dreams are a star feature. For this workshop, we will write about such a story (it can be a story that either happened to you or to a relative). Once you have your mind settled on one story (or a few), look for pertinent materials to illustrate it—either a photograph of the protagonist, of the place, of an object in question, or maybe it’s something physical (a piece of jewelry, a piece of cloth). Get as creative as you want. Writer Ingrid Rojas Contreras and Artist Jeremiah Barber will lead you into translating the object you bring into an artwork. At the end of the workshop, you will have a six-page accordion book. Students are requested to bring family materials (photos, documents, etc.) for inspiration.

Selected books will be exhibited at the Inti Raymi Gallery for the month of February.
