Lifting the Ground Up [iter.02] is a site-specific, public performance art ritual inspired by the element of earth and incorporates sound, visuals, plants, and scent. Through the restoration of native ecology, land stewardship, and communal care, it is a durational tribute to the communities of San Juan Hill. The project began in fall 2023 with a communal performance art ritual led by interdisciplinary artist, performer, and healer Rena Anakwe. The ritual was performed to prepare the land for a native planting ceremony with local NYC residents. On May 4, 2024, the plants will be revisited with a welcoming ritual and a series of collaborative sound (healing) circles performed with local musicians and sound practitioners. Plants will be given away to continue their life cycles throughout NYC.
