Memento Mori

Exploring that which makes us most uncomfortable, Larassa Kabel explores the emotional and intellectual space between life and death, love and loss. Through drawing, painting, performance, and sculpture, she confronts our view of ourselves “outside of Nature” and our desire to distance ourselves from our mortality. 

Circular Solutions: CENTER Award + Grant Recipients 2021 & 2022

Founded in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the not-for-profit organization CENTER supports socially and environmentally engaged lens-based projects through education, public platforms, funding, and partnerships.

Image-making holds a unique power to confront audiences with uncomfortable truths, advance cultural understandings, and promote social justice. Through the advancement of artists and their work, CENTER serves to deepen public understanding of lens-based media’s complex history and ongoing cultural significance. By establishing trans-disciplinary partnerships between artists and justice-driven communities, historians, cultural critics, students, and the art world, CENTER advances projects that respect all people, open minds, and engage our shared humanity. 

Passage / Time Pieces

Passage and Time Pieces are closely related but separate installations originally conceived by composer and performer Michael Harrison and artist Nina Elder. The immersive debut installation, Passage, interprets Earth’s light and dark, using illumination and shadow to simulate cosmic movements. In collaboration with composer/performers Elliot Cole, Ina Filip, and Benoit Rolland, Michael Harrison presents an interactive performative artwork that responds to the passage of one day of celestial and human time. In addition to designing the lighting for Passage, Nina Elder created the exquisite graphite drawings in Time Pieces – contemplations on the physical texture of time and the potential for transformation.
