AXIS MUNDI: BETWEEN TWO PLANES

The concept of axis mundi can be found in many cultures across the planet. It is known as the
cosmic center axis, the birthplace of the cosmos/self, and the pillar that connects the
heavens, earth, and underworld. Mesoamerican cultures, in particular, used these symbolically
charged sacred spaces as portals to communicate with the heavens and underworld.
Visual interpretations and the cultural functionality of the axis mundi varies widely from
culture to culture and is often represented by a tree, a snake, a ladder, and many other
forms. On a macrocosmic level these forms represent the cosmological axis but their
meaning also doubles in the microcosmic and can represent the self and the lower and higher
levels of consciousness.

The transition from birth to death is contemplated throughout
AXIS MUNDI: BETWEEN TWO PLANES and brings together painters Edgar Fernandez and Miguel Angel Godoy,
photographer Sam Gomez, and interdisciplinary artist Estephania González to collectively
expand and elaborate on their personal connection to the concept of axis mund i.
