FIBRA Colectivo: Lucia Monge (Visting Artist, Portland State University Art & Social Practice MFA Program), Gianine Tabja, Gabriela Flores del Pozo
FIBRA is a collective of Peruvian women artists who will share their project Desbosque: desenterrando señales, a fungi broadcast of deforestation in Ucayali, Peru. Desbosque is an immersive installation with mycelium sculptures, sound, and light that interprets deforestation data and pulses on the same frequency as tree loss. By discussing this project FIBRA will share their collaborative process and reflect on different ways of connecting between disciplines and species.
Please bring something to write/draw on.
