Clockshop, in partnership with Los Angeles State Historic Park, announces a new artist commission from LA artist Sarah Rosalena, For Submersion. The land that the Los Angeles State Historic Park sits on was once the floodplain of the Los Angeles River, an important waterway for the Tongva people who originally inhabited the region. Sarah Rosalena Brady’s 'For Submersion' is a public sculpture in the park commemorating this history. Rosalena incorporates Wixárika yarn painting — an art form practiced by generations of women in her family — and digital fabrication to create a monument that honors tradition while looking ahead to the future. If weather permits, the sculpture will be submerged under rainwater, alluding to the site’s original natural state.

 ‘For Submersion’ will be available to view from January 29, 2023 - June 11, 2023.
