In A Field of Ancient Stars delves into the mystic practice of physical sport, tying together Aleman’s archeological experience with her real and imagined memories.
“In archeology, I ask what it means to disinter a sacred space and relocate objects, relics, and belongings that are carefully enshrouded for that body, but that I and others find so much insight from,” said Aleman. “Much like a star dying and its material matter being siphoned off to recollect in a new field of planets and stars. I go into a meditative state where I am imagining that it’s my own family members, friends, or even myself. I handle these artifacts with care and allow them to move and become new matter.”
