"from the bed to the mountain evokes Mira Burack’s home in the foothills of the Ortiz Mountains of New Mexico. Elaborated through photocollaged installations and collections of found objects, this landscape of familiarity includes both intimate domestic space and the natural world. Inside and outside meet in the mountainous wall mural leafed together from cutout photos of a rumpled comforter. In her work, the way to place passes through sleep. And like dreaming, Burack’s practice resuscitates the materiality of vacated things through delicate, non-hierarchical recombination."
