by Katelyn Field (Garcia)
Katelyn Garcia’s art centers on performative interaction with the land, documented through video, photo, and installation work. She is interested in the land as a meditative and spiritual space. She draws from the history, ecology, and geology of the areas in which she works, as well as religious and spiritual symbolism from her own religion and others connected to the land. Predecessory Prayer is a performance piece with voice-over, written and performed by Katelyn Garcia. It deals with the difficult things we inherit or learn about in our family, cultural, religious, and national histories and the experience of working through those things.
