Tanya Huntngton Hyde´s Mexican Nature

Tanya Huntington Hyde attended the opening of her own art exhibition with a performance inspired mainly by The White Godess by Robert Graves. “Mexican Nature”  explores a traditional dichotomy in the arts:  urban vs. natural settings.  The images juxtapose the visual arts and poetry in order to have a dialog. As Graves argues, "true" or "pure" poetry is inextricably linked with the ancient cult-ritual of Graves proposed White Goddess. Huntigton text´s on the nature of poetic myth-making represents and questions our own approach to the femenine through the Earth.The first video is a poem about modern times. On the second she reads a poem dedicated to Aura Estrada. And the third video, we see Tanya Huntington blending away with nature.

*This exhibition took place in part thanks to the Houston Institute of Culture &  The Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA)
