Sarah Zapata's "A Famine of Hearing"

About the show

A maximalist large scale, textile installation that manifests queerness and futurity through fantasy. Admission is free. More…

Zapata invites you to enter and linger in her large-scale textile installation—handwoven, hand-tufted, and sewn into shapes and textures that are a bit misshapen, and refreshingly different from familiar everyday objects. Zapata’s objects can hold our fantasies. They form a landscape in which we can spend time and experience ourselves with other bodies. Through the excess of labor put into this work, Zapata conveys an amorphous sense of time, honoring tradition with untraditional aspects of existence and queerness. This approach also mirrors Zapata’s complex identity: a Texan living in Brooklyn, a lesbian raised as evangelical Christian, a first-generation American of Latin American descent, whose work is inspired by ancient indigenous traditions and ritual.
