3AP: Dianna Frid, How to Peer Through a Wormhole

3Arts / Jun 22, 2023 / Go to Original

Dianna Frid is developing a series of artworks inspired by a remarkable collection of rare books at the Burgoa Library in Oaxaca, Mexico. “What makes this collection surprising is that these books, over time, were marked by intricate paths and tunnels left behind by ancient insect and worm incursions. Instead of seeing the books as damaged, I see them as compelling traces of the inevitable transformations that affect all matter over time.” In 2025, Dianna has been invited by the Burgoa Library and the Centro Cultural San Pablo to exhibit new work inspired by these worm-holed books, resulting in one of the largest and most significant projects of her career to date.
