About Ali Beletic

Ali Beletic is a conceptual artist and musician who lives and works between Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, CA. Working across diverse media, Beletic’s practice hones in on the philosophical perception of human joy and celebration, through the lens of rock n roll, ancient traditions, latent instincts and sensual experiences. She is best known for her powerful, symbolic land art and works exploring ancient time scale. Establishing a dialogue between the conceptual and the sensual, Beletic’s work includes creating and hosting large scale experiential installations like her Vanguard Parties, Earth Art Ceremonies and Environments as well as traditional gallery shows. In addition, Beletic has also created installations and experiential works in the remote desert involving illuminated boulders, motorcycle rides creating lines of fire, musicians and the hidden installation of mahogany and glass Judd-like sculptural pools.

STATEMENT

“My work deals with the rich history that humanity has in its past. I am constantly trying to create a space or experience where the modern art-goer can be reminded of their own ancestral history – most importantly on a visceral level.”
