Cahuilla Installation: NETAXMUQA

Site Specific Installation

Previous | Portfolio | Next

NETAXMUQA means "I am singing" in the Cahuilla language.


I have to admit that I was pretty intimidated about putting these signs out like this. As stated in my video statement, I am pretty introverted person. Sounds strange to say, but these works meant more to me than if they had been exhibited at the Whitney or something.


I wanted to make something specifically for my tribe and their response was amazingly positive. That said, after being up for over a year they were finally vandalized and destroyed.


More signs are in the works!!!!!!
