Solar Mountains & Broken Hearts
Out of a climatic-cultural moment that happened in 1815, and placed the earthly and sublime on the same level, Maya Attoun builds a cosmic landscape that runs on a time scale of its own. She works with sculpture, drawing and animation to create a catastrophic landscape that cannot be tied to a specific time and place.
Attoun is a multidisciplinary artist, engaging in a dialogue between thought processes, intuited gestures, materials and images. Her work encompasses a variety of media that includes murals, drawings, prints, sculptural objects, ready-mades and sound. Through these she reflects on modernity, history of popular culture, and the intersection of myth, narrative and science.
