‘On Navajoland’

‘On Navajoland’
Photographs by MYRIAM ABDELAZIZ


.

Exhibition at The Collective Gallery 173 - 171
October 4th  – November 5th 2008
 

 
The Collective Gallery 173-171 is proud to present ‘On Navajoland’ by Myriam Abdelaziz, a photography exhibit that portrays the Navajo on their land.
The Opening Reception will be held at the Collective Gallery 173 – 171 on October 4th from 6 to 8 pm.

‘On Navajoland’ is a photographic series the photographer started in 2007 while living with the tribe for several weeks to document the disappearance of their culture. The Navajo is one of the largest Indian tribe in North America. Navajoland is located within the exterior boundaries of the states of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. Nearly 175,000 Navajo are spread across a reservation of 16.2 million acres, an area larger than West Virginia. (Another 100,000 more Navajo live off the reservation.)

Life on the reservation is changing. While most elders speak Navajo, most young people speak English. Across the Navajo Nation, the number of sheep and goats have declined, and with them the rural lifestyle that binds the Navajo to their land. While the Navajo’s connection to their land remains strong, it has become more spiritual than actual as many young Navajo have moved into towns seeking wage labor that now fuels the reservation’s economy. In town, they find easier access to public schools, grocery stores, and social activities. Even the traditional eight-sided Hogan, has given way to federally subsidized housing and mobile homes.
 Nowadays, the Navajo struggle to survive and to find a new identity. They’re loosing their language, tradition and religion without being integrated in the American society as has been the case with other minorities in the country.

The photographs in this exhibition highlight the gaps between generations in Navajo society that reflect the contradictions of living between modernity and tradition. The people continued to evolve but their land always remained the same.
The photographs are still and quiet; they evoke a timeless land.

The 20 photographs exhibited were taken with an Analog Camera either 35mm Panoramic or 6x4.5 Medium Format, then scanned and digitally printed on Inkjet Archival Paper.

‘When I am there I feel trapped in both space and time, everything is immutable’. Myriam Abdelaziz


Myriam Abdelaziz (born 1976, Cairo) is a French, Egyptian, Swiss freelance Documentary and Portraiture photographer.
She grew up in Geneva before moving to Cairo in 1987 and then to Paris in 1996. Myriam received her BA in Political Science from the American University in Cairo, a Masters in Journalism from Paris X University and an MBA from EDC Paris.  She graduated from the International Center of Photography and has been based in New York since 2005.

The Collective Gallery 173 -171 is a very unconventional intimate space with one–on–one relationship with: collectors, critics, art consultants, art lovers & members of the business world. We are a collective of twelve artists. The Gallery established in 2007 is located in Chinatown near the Lower East Side the upcoming Art Scene of NYC.
Missions:
- To focus on contemporary art in all media including video and installations _
- To present work by mid-carrier and emerging artists from all over the world. _
- To show artwork in a broad cultural context, addressing key issues related to social and political concerns.
