Artist Jessica Harvey's Making Meaning Out of Mountains will be on view at GALLERY Land Collective February 1-28, with an opening reception on February 1, 6-8pm.

 

Using the Sangre de Cristo Range of the Rocky Mountains as a
backdrop to the UFO Watchtower in Hooper Colorado, Jessica
Harvey’s Making Meaning Out of Mountains turns the lens onto
fragments of one woman’s search for something greater. This
Colorado site was built atop two vortexes in the mystical San Luis
Valley, where people look to the mountains and skies above for
answers.


Digging through public and private archives, Jessica Harvey conducts
long-term investigations of historical and personal events based
on the interpretation of facts, which often changes by the person
doing the narration. She reinterprets these stories with the use of
photography, video, archival resources, and objects constructed from
everyday materials. These images and installations act as a catalyst
for a fantastical exploration of the psychology that one attaches to
memory and place, putting particular emphasis on the role of women
in these histories. Through humor and tragedy Harvey creates a new
way of re-evaluating life, death, and the mythology of our own history.
