Elysia Mann makes books and weavings that encourage spiritual attachment to place. She grew up on a prairie homestead on unceded Umonhon land in Nebraska where natural beauty and partial vision loss instilled an early reverence for the horizon, stars, and sight itself. Her work zooms in on fragments of landscape and language in order to zoom out on meaning. She uses left-right symbolism that is rooted in the body to challenge binary thinking and capitalist pressure to separate ourselves from nature and each other.
