BEKÍ BASCH (b. 1987 New Jersey) makes work that ruminates on psychospirituality, monomythic journeys and the existential crisis of our changing natural environment. Her work is a coping mechanism, a domestic craft, a shamanic realization, an introspective narrative.

She lives and works in Baltimore, Maryland.
