The Jung Center
The Quiet Thread by Gaby Berglund Cárdenas
Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019 – Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019
On view February 2-27, 2019 | Opening reception February 2, 5-7 pm
While studying Buddhism in Asia, artist Gaby Cárdenas created lengthy ink calligraphy scrolls as part of her meditation practice. The repetitive process was like saying a mantra or a prayer. Composed of those scrolls, this series explores the power of mindfulness and raises awareness of its value in healing and expressing experiences of illness. The artist encourages “mindful activism,” or using meditation to stay grounded when engaged in peaceful resistance.
