The Jane Hartsook Gallery is pleased to present Natalia Arbelaez’s New York City solo debut. In her research-based artwork, Arbelaez uses sculpture and video to embody her family’s stories and her experiences as a Colombian American. Approaching her artwork as a storyteller and archivist, Arbelaez adds these missing stories to the historical record.

In this exhibition, Arbelaez has reinterpreted pre-Columbian Andean art and rituals, remixing them with elements from the American pop culture of her youth. She presents videos of herself using her ceramic sculptures to perform these newly personalized rituals. Her sculptures, which are displayed alongside the videos, are inspired by, for example, Quimbaya pottery, Muisca golden masks, and Inka agricultural tools. Arbelaez uses her videos to draw attention to the conceptual nature of the pre-Columbian pieces that her sculptures are based on. She reminds us that those works are art, not artifacts, and should be engaged with for their ideas, not just admired for their forms.
