The Miraculous Artist
The Miraculous Artist was an interactive installation comprising video, performance, live music, printed material, and a non‐denominational confessional. On opening night, audience members had the opportunity to consult with and receive free advice from The Miraculous Artist.
Mayorga's installation was accompanied on opening night by an improvised organ repertoire performed by musician, Greg Svitil. Svitil has collaborated with Mayorga on past projects such as Pig Lengua and Newspaper Soup. Carolina Mayorga's artwork addresses issues of social and political content. Themes of migration, war, and identity are woven throughout the artist's videos, performances, and site‐specific installations.
