TIGRE BAILANDO Jardín de Sueños
Tigre Bailando is a California-based artist whose work focuses on personal and collective liberation – a kind of freedom achieved through the discovery and empowerment of our deeper selves.
Working across a wide range of mediums and disciplines, Tigre creates large-scale installations, sculptures, murals, and performance works at festivals and cultural gatherings across the country and around the world.
The figures and beings that populate this work are ancestral entities, ghosts of Tigre’s own multi-ethnic heritage but also the collective ancestors of all of us, before there was race, nation, species, gender. They embody the way in which we are all connected, even though we love to forget it. Exploring the rhythms of life and death; discovering healing through introspection, dialogue, and play; finding hope by exploring the darkness; these are the lessons Tigre's work seeks to share.
Jardín de Sueños is an inner-forest sculpture garden designed to offer both restoration and inspiration. Forest citizens rest in hammocks hanging among this activated environment, stroll the paths reading poetry, sit in reflection before the ancestral forms. The hope of this space is to inspire visitors towards a deeper engagement with their own lives and with the world around them.
