Spirit in the Land
February 16 – July 09, 2023
The connection of all life, the spirit of the land for me, since I was a little girl, and climbed trees and looked out, has been extremely important.Alexa Kleinbard
Alexa Kleinbard: Spirit in the Land is a 7-minute video about the artist Alexa Kleinbard, whose work is part of the exhibition Spirit in the Land. In this video, viewers visit the artist’s home in Tallahassee, Florida, where she talks about how she firmly believes in herbalism and using plants for healing. The camera pans across her REMEDIES series. Viewers learn about Kleinbard’s inspiration from nature, and how a lifetime of studying plants and animals has informed her work.
My work is really about the whole ecology and how everything is connected.Alexa Kleinbard
