Working across media, with an emphasis on woven sculpture, wearable art, and durational performance, Eric-Paul Riege (b. 1994, Na’nízhoozhí/Gallup, New Mexico) explores the worldview fostered by Diné, or Navajo, philosophy and its bearing on everyday experience. Employing traditional weaving methods he learned from the matriarchs of his family and engaging foundational Diné myths, Riege creates sheltering spaces that allude to ceremonial sites and dwellings, and produces elaborate regalia that serve as both sculptural objects and wearable garments during the hours-long performances he calls “weaving dances.” “Hólǫ́—it xistz” at ICA Miami is Riege’s first solo museum project.
