Sleeping between the Sun and the Moon is a meditation on the interior and exterior spaces in and around Mira Burack’s New Mexico home in the Ortiz Mountains. The exhibition evokes the elemental and celestial surroundings of this mountainous landscape. It explores the liminal experience and psychological qualities of textiles, the bed and sleep. Her work shares the coexistence of plants, animals and family. How does the materiality of daily life teach intimacy, engage the senses, provide comfort, heal, invite rest and elicit pleasure? Through intricate photography collage installations, collections of found objects and plants, and sound, a contemplative space is created where the mystical, high desert landscape meets the intimacy of domestic space.
