Jaime Miranda-Bambaren, Seeds (13 Moons)

June 21, 2022 to November 1, 2022
Thomas Paine Park, Manhattan


Artist Jaime Miranda-Bambaren exhumes the truncated roots of plundered trees in the Peruvian highlands. They are centennial arbors, planted in viceregal times, razed by our degrading "modernity." By transforming such remains into “seeds”, Miranda affirms an ecological claim and a resurrectional act: to transfigure those fields of sown death into almost breathing images of life.
