Group Show: Grupo < >
The topography that determines our incomplete history stands on social riddles and political erraticism. The outset of our narratives are rooted somewhere in Latin America and the Caribbean. The essence of this initial context, its distinct sounds, colors, and textures, will follow wherever we go. Our condition is transient, defined by the constant crossing of physical, social, and political boundaries. This activity marks our lives and our works.
We find ourselves in a double bind, in the space that separates the places we have left from the unrest of our present. Grupo < > creates pauses in between this constant movement where we can share and examine the paradigms of our itinerant experience. This exhibition juxtaposes dissimilar objects that address shared questions. Each artist has built their own language with the traces of multiple places and times. These objects exist in parallel planes that overlap and diverge as they expose the complexity of a life in between; embodying a desire to remember, challenge, and question an unreliable past that extends beyond our personal history.
