The multifaceted artworks of Ambrosia Bartošekulva are seemingly limitless in their imaginings and mediums. Her vast multistory (and multisensory) installations such as #PLANETS, textured mixed-media paintings including salt honey and menstrual blood, or the internal underworlds invoked in aria as wrtch all contain a common thread of innate wisdom and lead us on journeys not out but through. Despite deep DIY roots in Seattle’s underground, Ambrosia has recently moved to Chicago to pursue a BA of Fine Arts focusing on technology, biology, and sculpture at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago as the recipient of a full merit scholarship.
"Rabbit Holes [andotherexits] was a tape I didn't mean to make. Somehow this year amidst four separate hospitalizations, I managed to record some deeper, darker, closer to death levels of being. I didn't decide to put these recordings together till my last hospitalization, three weeks ago, for a heart attack. Unable to leave the hospital bed, I started sifting through multiple batches of recordings from last winter and conceptualizing this tape. Having experienced a trip to the void and the infinite spiral of unraveling self and reality that is death, Rabbit Holes [andotherexits] was a title that came quite naturally. Krist Krueger (spearhead of Yardsss and the label Self Group) did all of the mixing and I managed to get a rush order of tapes done before my June/July tour, and made some DIY style acrylic laser cut packaging." - Ambrosia Bartosekulva
