Interview and conversation with the artist
This work was created in an attempt to fill this void by memorializing what was lost, and serve as an example of the power objects have over us: how we process their loss, create something new to continue their legacy and deepen the emotional power that the original object stood in for.
Dario Mohr is a New York City based interdisciplinary artist. Born in 1988, Mohr received a BFA from Buffalo State College, and an MFA from The City College of New York. He creates interactive sanctuary experiences using an interdisciplinary approach. In addition to work created in painting, sculpture or made digitally, he often includes assembled objects to build immersive “sacred spaces”. These often exist in unexpected places, using mundane objects. Because objects are endowed with the significance that the viewer blesses it with, his work can provide a lot of space for divergent perspectives and interpretations. The recycling of old work is also fundamental to Mohr’s practice. You will see previously created paintings and sculptures as well as the reuse of objects, textiles, cushions and other elements in future works. Sometimes a previously used item provides the perfect juxtaposition to enhance or add depth to new explorations. In addition to his individual art practice, he is also the founder and Director of AnkhLave Arts Alliance, Inc. which is a non-profit for the recognition and representation of BIPOC artists in contemporary art.
