Lourdes Cue weaving landscapes, sounds, languages, myths and memory into a single experience

...to reinvent that location where the two cultural realities collide, and coincide.
For over a decade, I've constantly traveled between my place of origin, Mexico, and my place of residence, Minneapolis. This perennial movement has triggered a cultural tension in my work and created an in–between space where the development of my ideas occur. My recent installations have tried to reinvent that location where the two cultural realities collide, and coincide. I'm engaged in a process of mapping elements from both countries, including their geography, history, daily lives, and rituals.

My work invokes associations between these different worlds by weaving landscapes, sounds, languages, myths and memory into a single experience. I've wanted the spaces I've created to convey a network of parallel and fragmented locations. The materials I've utilized have ranged from blocks of granite and basalt from Minnesota quarries, carved into ships set atop grass seas, to gallery installations that include videos of natural settings and urban environments in Mexico.
