Ali Beletic is a contemporary conceptual artist specializing in a new type of experiential work she calls Earth Art Ceremonies, which participate in the historic tradition of ceremony as a means to create evocative experiences for the modern art community to have access to ancient emotions, latent instincts and 360 degree sensual experiences.
She recently finished several large-scale sculptural works and recorded a full length record in the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona. She is currently working on new works in and around Los Angeles, California.
Ali’s practice hones in on a philosophical perspective regarding a human tradition of joy and celebration. Also informed by the perspective that humans have latent instincts and abilities beyond the average civilized training. She often draws on a wide variety of ancient symbols, narratives, traditions, materials, subsistence techniques, art, mineralogy, medicine, flora, ecology and mythology to help invoke some of these latent instincts and feelings.
