A Pit in the Stomach: Fundraiser for Dig Deep Water

A Pit in the Stomach(2019)
Oyster shells, gold leaf Variable dimensions
The gold oysters in A Pit In The Stomach are part of a special fundraising project for Dig Deep Water, a non-profit working to increase access to potable water on Diné lands.
Dig Deep Water is a community-managed utility alternative that works to bring clean hot and cold water to those in need through the building of new wells, in-home running water systems, and water delivery trucks.
For Diné families, access to clean water is extremely limited and expensive — over 40% don’t have running water or a toilet in their home — and individuals travel many hours to the nearest well. A Pit In The Stomach addresses topics of consumption and greed and their effects on Southwest Indigenous communities and lands. In response, I’m using this project to raise funds for Dig Deep Water to help Diné families.
For every $5.00 spent, I will mail you a gold oyster as a reminder of our communal and individual power in either healing or worsening these capitalistic consequences.
100% of proceeds will go towards helping Diné communities.
The fundraiser will carry on throughout the duration of the show, May 25 - July 12, and oysters will be given to their new homes after the show closes on July 12, 2019.
To buy and receive an oyster, please purchase online or inquire within the gallery.
