Nancy Sánchez is an artist that exists in multiple dimensions within this world. Ancestral practices and ceremonies have guided her artmaking. She creates objects that live in between spaces of being art objects, sacred objects, and sacred spaces. She uses rituals to alchemize three-dimensional matter and spaces; objects then become tools for healing or portals to release and receive energy.
Sánchez focuses on the power of healing to create metaphysical moments in Chicago that offset the effects of systemic violence within her city. Nuestra existencia es resistencia y nuestra sanación es nuestra liberación. Our existence is resistance, and our healing is our liberation.
