Eric-Paul Riege (Diné/Navajo, USA)
Artspace and White Bay Power Station

EricPaul Riege is a Diné weaver and fibre artist working in collage, durational performance, installation, woven sculpture, and wearable art. Using weaving as both means and metaphor to tell hybrid tales that interlace stories from Diné spirituality with his own interpretations and cosmology, Riege understands his artworks as animate and mobile. His practice pays homage and links him to generations of weavers in his family that aids him in generating spaces of sanctuary. 

Commissioned by the Biennale of Sydney and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain with generous support from Terra Foundation for American Art.
