The Verbier 3-D Foundation is proud to continue our support and collaboration with the Verbier Art Summit.
From 29 to 30 January 2021, the Summit will celebrate its fifth edition continuing around the important theme: RESOURCE HUNGRY - Our Cultured Landscape and its Ecological Impact
Next year a new format will also take form as the virtual Verbier Art Summit—taking place concurrently with the annual in-person Summit in Verbier, Switzerland—will consist of a two-day free, digital programme, welcoming all those with a love for art, innovation and ecology to participate.
The Summit will give voice to artists, thinkers, activists, and especially young change-makers who are demanding a new way forward.
For next year's Summit, the Verbier 3-D Foundation will work with our Residency Artist Natalie Ball on exhibiting new work that contributes to the discussion of environmental and racial narratives that are critical to further realizing the self, the nation, and necessarily, our shared experiences and histories.
Natalie works in a tradition of West Coast/California Assemblage, reminiscent of the 1970s Los Angeles Funk based free Assemblage. Through her chosen objects, attributed to indigenous identity, Natalie reassesses indigeneity as a space outside of bounded thinking.
I developed my studio practice using visual archives, history, gesture, materiality, and personal experience as the foundation to create painted textiles and sculptures as Power Objects. Through auto-ethnography, I attempt to move ‘Indian’ outside of governing discourses to offer a visual genealogy that refuses to line up with the many constructed existences of Native Americans.
