Andres Bedoya: From Ultra Madre
Free admission (all visitors, all hours)
Andres Bedoya’s performance installation Ultra Madre was originally presented at the Museo Nacional de Arte in La Paz, Bolivia in 2009 . Born of private mourning, the piece ultimately speaks of loss as a collective experience.
Installed within the main arch of the museum’s patio, a steel and wood scaffold holding 57 women disrupted its architecture physically and functionally. For approximately one hour, participating women lay still with their long hair cascading down the 15-foot structure. In stark contrast to the hardness of the building, the bodies appeared soft, impermanent and ephemeral.
The current show, From Ultra Madre, presents materials generated during its 18-month development. Through studies, photographs and documentation of the process, the broader narrative and context for the project is articulated.
