Forty one years after its completion, six friends travelled together to see Walter De Maria’s 1977 artwork The Lightning Field in Western New Mexico. Thunderstruck is the aftermath of that trip, a group of art works and collective feelings. Questions of material, history, indigenous heritage, and embodiment suffuse these works in print, drawing, sound, sculpture, and installation. Thunderstruck re-presents The Lightning Field as an accumulation of meaning unfixed by time, floating free from De Maria’s authorial intention.
