Co-Lab Project Space
A Collaborative Installation by Anthony Romero + Carlos Rosales-Silva
Excerpt from Chapter 1:
In the aftermath of their meeting, the Shaman and the Warrior had torn a path through what was once known as a sacred place. Their meeting had produced only one certainty, they were born of the same cosmic mother, and their journeys would be intertwined because of it.
Prayermakers and Bonesetters will chronicle the meeting of these two mythic beings and be built on the ashes of the ceremony (fiesta) held in their honor. The installation will be a melding of cultural identity politics, magical realism, bright colors, Edward James Olmos, and disembodied spirits.
