Nick Mangan: A1 Southwest Stone / SITE Santa Fe Seventh International Biennial, Lucky Number Seven

Another off-site location of “Lucky Number Seven”, the SITE Santa Fe Seventh International Biennial, is 1005-G Alto Street in a corner of Santa Fe that’s not easy to find. Here, at an abandoned workshop, Nick Mangan installed a fake excavation site. Nick Mangan was born in 1979 in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany. About his project in Santa Fe he says: “I am interested in utilizing the notion of an excavation, physically – with a shovel – but moreover as a way of gathering information about the town’s local history and myths; as a way of sieving through some of the facts and fictions, upturning some of the mud.”
