Description

SARAH BISCARRA DILLEY (chumash + chicana) is a multi-disciplinary artist, bruja, 'axi. Her work explores the spaces between the worlds; between blood sickness and bloodlines, between grief and joy, between body and land, between the spatial and the temporal. She is anchored in the intention and practices of indigenous resurgence: through cartographic upheaval, through contradiction, through complexity, through communion.

Using found footage, cut paper, archival material, handwork, language and thread, she traces a landscape of indigenous resilience and shifting relationships of belonging, displacement, and home.
