ARTIST TALKS: ERIC PAUL RIEGE
1606 Paseo De Peralta
Santa Fe, NM 87501
SITElines.2018 artist Eric-Paul Riege is a weaver and fiber artist from Na’nízhoozhí [Gallup, NM] working in performance, installation, soft sculpture, collage, and wearable art. In this program, Riege will share a story of Na’ashjé’íí Asdzáá and teach string games to participants. His work and process are prayers between his mind, body, and beliefs by remembering his history and his people and his family—how it has gifted him his identity and worldview and craft.
diyin+, hooghan and weaving dance (fig.3) for Na’ashjé’íí Asdzáá, Retha, Effie, Angela is a multimedia fiber installation of eight large looms that recreate the ancient dwelling and hooghan [house/home] of Na’ashjé’íí Asdzáá [Spiderwoman], the Holy person who shared weaving to Diné peoples. The looms act as an altar for the female weavers and fiber artists within Riege’s family and as a sacred womb for warmth, refuge, and beauty that welcomes all.
