Wall-2

Performative work at Loyola Museum of Art: All that lies beyond us.  People of all ages, faiths and nationalities were invited to participate by writing about their evidence that something lies beyond us.  Over the life of the exhibition, submitted statements were written on the walls of the museum. From the catalouge:

 

"All that lies beyond us explores one of the most basic human questions: “Who are we and
 why are we here?” This site-specific work was conceived for the quiet space of the Loyola museum of Art and is based on the artist’s research on ritual, and belief.  Albor read works by those who embraced the concept of direct experience, intuition, instinct, or insight.  Evelyn Underhill had a particular influence on Albor. Underhill was born in London in 1875, and dedicated herself to a life of deep contemplation, pacifism, and writing. Drawing inspiration from these themes, All that lies beyond us, asks all of us to share what it is in the everyday that leads us to believe that there is more than just the here and now.  The resulting work has no material substance; the chalk used to cover the walls will be washed off at the end of the exhibition.  The format of the piece... the inclusion of other people in the creative process... also removes the artist from the 
role of sole creator, blurring the line between author, artist, and audience.
