Cecilia Vicuna: About to Happen NEW EDITION

In stock (1000 items available)
Beginning and ending at the edge of the ocean at the sacred mouth of the Aconcagua River, About to Happen serves as a lament as well as love letter to the sea. In this artist's book, Chilean-born artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña weaves personal and ancestral memory while summoning the collective power to confront the economic disparities and environmental crises of the 21st century. About to Happen traces a decades-long practice that has refused categorical distinctions and thrived within the confluences of conceptual art, land art, feminist art, performance and poetry. Vicuña's nuanced visual poetics -- operating fluidly between concept and craft, text and textile -- transforms the discarded into the elemental, paying acute attention to the displaced, the marginalised and the forgotten.
