“Repellent Eye Over Phoenix”

Anyone who’s interested in sound- and art-installation in the Southwest is probably familiar with Postcommodity. The collective, comprised of four Native American artists working in a variety of mediums has been creating politcally charged and culturally inquisitive work since 2007. For this week’s arts profile, the Alibi caught up with member Raven Chacon to discuss the direction of Postcommodity in the wake of a large grant and an upcoming installation in Australia.

Postcommodity’s Raven Chacon on art without borders

By Sam Adams
Toward the end of 2012, arts collective Postcommodity intends to raise 20 acrylic balloons that are 10 feet in diameter parallel to the U.S.-Mexico border. "Part of this project is that it's this kind of sculptural piece," says Raven Chacon, "this kind of fence, which will run along the border. But part of it is performance in a way of us having to navigate what is safe to be called a battlefield."

Postcommodity

A balance of painterly and graphic techniques are lent to gloomy blacks, whites and grayscale in what appears to be a bird-laden landscape print. Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez, Kade L. Twist and Nathan Young make up the interdisciplinary American Indian arts collective Postcommodity. On Friday, June 10, they'll be doing a noise show at the Santa Fe Art Institute's Tipton Hall. The show begins at 6 p.m. Admission is $10 general, $5 for students/seniors/members. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)
