Big Paradise Explores Roots Both Literal and Ancestral

No contributor

On view during this year’s edition of Upstate Art Weekend, Big Paradise is presenting the exhibition “Roots” in Germantown, New York. The group exhibition will be set across the five acres of Granja Paraiso, the garden, farm, and studio space belonging to the artist and curator Katiushka Melo Green, open from August 27—29,

The presentation will include works by over 20 international and local artists across mediums like site-specific installation, performance, video, NFT, painting, and more. The show is inspired by the story of a friend of Mexican indigenous heritage and looks at ideas of origin, family, primal connection, and nature, examining the idea of roots both literal and ancestral.

Visitors can expect to explore these themes beginning when first entering the property across a beautiful natural setting. There they’ll find a series of durational performances in the herb garden, an on-site installation (which can be enjoyed both outdoors and in) at the art studio, and works presented at the chicken coop—including a video and two installations. And after exploring the grounds, visitors should plan to stick around to close out the evening with a sunset performance of sound, dance, and a gong ceremony.

With a full program available online, the exhibition “Roots” will feature work by Katiushka Melo Green, Maarten Baas, Madeleine Roger Lacan, Sama Alshaibi, Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow, Yeni Mao, AES+F, Laurel Atwell, Bayo, Antonio Bokel, Miguel Cardenas, Patricia Domingez, Ryan Frank, Christy Gast, Nico Grum, Stanton Jones, Mariangela Lopez, Alexandra Mabes, Mor Mendel, Veronica Santiago Moniello, Sebastian Silva, Van der Kritz, Nick Van Woert, and Audra Wolowiec.
