International Art Museum of America | 1025 Market Street, San Francisco, CA

Touching the Earth is a sand art installation of the ancestral tradition of powder drawing. In what French artist Marie-Therese Latuner calls the ‘transported gesture’, she displaces the ancestral traditions of powder drawing: those learned in South India, on the doorsteps of houses at dawn with Indian women, or elsewhere in the temples of Kerala with the artists/officiants.

The drawing of powder becomes a passer from one world to another, circulating from the ground to the bodies, and is crossed by the deities then must be erased in order to disperse the powders for a time sacredized and close the ritual moment.  The powders used are those collected in the landscapes around San Francisco: sand, sandstone, and Arizona soil. This practice also aims to be linked to the places, the soils, the richness and diversity of the natural powders of the surrounding landscapes.
