Grace (Graciela) Cipparone Svarre is a Canadian born artist who has lived in Mexico for more than thirty years.
Visual Historian Sarah Borealis is collaborating with the artist on the publication of an image heavy book and a documentary film. Our production team is working with Graciela’s journals, photos, art collection, audio recordings, and correspondence to create a multi-sensory narrative of the years she lived in the Lacandon Rainforest.
This immersive experience includes unique craft cocktails and botanas served in a curated soundscape that highlights rhythmic parallels between New Orleans and Latin America. The experience includes an educational sampling of mezcal, a traditional Mexican drink distilled from the Agave plant. Mezcal has prehispanic origins, and over centuries it has been understood to elevate consciousness.
