Made by Dusk is Mette Tommerup’s final installment of a trilogy of installations that follow the pilgrimage of massive, pigmented, raw canvases created in natural environments. The exhibition is inspired by the Nordic Goddess, Freya, the untamed goddess of love, war, beauty, gold, and transformation.
ethereal (adj): extremely delicate and light in a way that seems too perfect for this world
Members are cordially invited to experience Ethereal—a playful, glittering activation ushering in prosperity for the New Year by Mette Tommerup presented in conjunction with her show, Made by Dusk.
Inspired by Freya, the Nordic Goddess of gold, delicate flakes of gold leaf float from the ceiling toward visitors who are encouraged to try to catch the weightless sheets to create a collaborative work of art in the form of a richly gilded horn. As the day progresses and more gold leaf falls, the resplendent gold will accumulate throughout the space adding a joyful and exuberant experience as visitors passing through stir up the golden leaves, making them dance lightly in the air before falling again. The otherworldly and celebratory moment invokes a call for Freya’s promise to provide in the future that is 2021.

To a God.dess Unknown is a live-streamed performance and activation by Danié Gómez Ortigoza that explores the process by which divinity unfolds itself from the universal to the individual. The performance is an activation of Tommerup's exhibition, an otherworldly space dedicated to Freya, the Nordic Goddess of love, beauty, fertility, sex, war, gold, and seiðr, the ancient shamanic practice of altering the course of fate by symbolically weaving new events into being.
Danié is a Mexican-American multi-media artist who believes in the power of braiding with intention. Creativity has been the only constant in her career, having worked as a television host for Disney, a Copywriter and Digital Strategist at various advertising agencies in Mexico and Canada, a Marketing Director for a media publication in Sweden, and correspondent for Glamour Mexico and Latin America based in Miami, where she received a Fashion Group International Award for her work. She also created the first Mexican Delegation for the Women’s Forum for Economy and Society in France, presided by Salma Hayek. Learn more at journeyofabraid.com | @journeyofabraid
