Goshka Macuga approaches her art practice like a research project. She uncovers mystical stories and ideas, and then uses conventions of archiving and museum display to translate the research into visual language. She has created environments in which to display work by other artists, collections of books, or curiosities—often making an allusion to the artistic process. For the project It Broke from Within (2010), researched in the Walker Art Center archives for months, culminating in an installation of a tapestry depicting the Minnesotan wilderness woven with archival snippets, viewing platforms and sunken seating areas, and displays of texts, old photographs, and other materials from the vaults.
