Between Horn and Wing is a multimedia collection of Miguel Anaya’s daily artistic practice while nursing a series of potentially career-ending dance related injuries. With the intention of re-connecting to the spiritual self, Anaya’s work investigates the theme of duality. Central to this theme are the various binaries that tend to inhabit Anaya’s own life. Examples within this collection include: light versus dark, masculine versus feminine, English versus Spanish and indigenous aesthetics juxtaposed with familiar Judeo-Christian idols. This collection seeks to invite the viewer on his journey towards self-realization in the hopes that it will inspire them to start their spiritual paths themselves.
