Delcy Morelos: Interwoven and On Earth

Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis (United States)

08.03 - 04.08.2025




At the heart of the exhibition is Earthly Weaving, a large maze-like structure made of soil. The artwork was commissioned by the Pulitzer and designed for the main gallery. Eight-foot-high metal link fencing, encrusted with earth and spices, including aromatic cinnamon and cloves, forms passageways for visitors to navigate. Here, a building element customarily used to restrict access to land is repurposed to support an earthen structure.

Morelos has described the installation as being about the contemporary world’ “bsession with being owners of the land.”Morelos continues, “eople put up nets, fences, and railings to delineate and separate land, saying this is ‘ine’and that is ‘ot mine.’But it is absurd to think that we can be owners of the earth. We form part of the earth and we are united with her—e are not her proprietors.”

Running concurrently at Dia Chelsea, New York, Delcy Morelos’ first US solo presentation, is on view until July 2024.

About the artist

Delcy Morelos’ practice blurs the definitions of painting, sculpture, and installation. Over the last decade, she has focused on large-scale, site-specific installations using soil, clay, natural fibers, and other organic materials. Born in Tierralta, Colombia, in 1967, Morelos lives and works in Bogotá. Her recent solo presentations include those at Marian Goodman Gallery, Paris (2023); Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (2022); Galería Santa Fe, Bogotá (2019); Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge, Canada (2019); NC-arte, Bogotá (2018); and Röda Sten Konsthall, Gothenburg, Sweden (2018).

On Earth, the second exhibition, features five film and video works that explore the complex relationships between humans and the natural environment. Produced between 1975 and 2022, the artworks highlight a range of urgent and interconnected realities. Addressing environmental devastation, displacement, and land rights, the artists draw parallels between our treatment of the earth and the people who inhabit it.

The artist roster includes Ali Cherri (based in Brooklyn, New York, born 1976, Beirut, Lebanon); Jeffrey Gibson (based in Hudson, New York, born 1972, Colorado Springs, Colorado); Sky Hopinka (based in Brooklyn, New York, born 1984, Ferndale, Washington); Ana Mendieta (born 1948 in Havana, Cuba, died in New York City, 1985); and Rivane Neuenschwander (based in Sã Paulo, born 1967, Belo Horizonte, Brazil), in collaboration with Cao Guimarãs.
