Roxana Barba: Amaru in Heaven

Roxana Barba

As we retreat into the digital while the natural world burns and floods, Roxana Barba offers a multi-media invocation of the ancestral Andean cosmovision of her native Peru. In Amaru in Heaven (the pre-Columbian serpent deity subverting Catholic prayer), Barba – who’s been working with archeologists and historians in Miami and Lima – imagines a mythic universe where past, present and future come together.
