Leesa Haapapuro: Muñecas Quitapenas
Exhibit dates: February 15–25, 2010
Haapapuro's recent work "Muñecas Quitapenas," which means "No Worries" is inspired by Guatemalan worry dolls and investigates magical thinking. Anthropologists observe cultures that believe actions/intent invest special powers/forces in objects. Participants are invited to make a figure that manifests their anxiety (materials provided). These figures become part of a large pattern, referencing the belief in the interconnectedness of all things.
