In the Spirit of the Hills

Event description

  • Arts and entertainment
  • Free
  • Open to the public

In the Spirit of the Hills is a solo exhibition by interdisciplinary artist Steffi Faircloth. Through video, text, sound, and sculpture, this exhibition examines the everyday occurrences of growing up in the borderlands. Faircloth employs mundaneness, humor, and sexuality to dissect the extent to which the customs and norms of bordertown existence are shaped by external authorities as opposed to the collective community. With the fusion of personal subjectivity and geographical spaces, Faircloth's work transcends the confines of mere physical location. It expands into the digital realm, permeating the internet, television shows, the commercial-driven landscapes of Las Vegas, video games, and viral social media trends. In the Spirit of the Hills is an exploration of identity, community, the internet, and the shifting boundaries that define our lives in borderland contexts.
