Serendipia, A Happy Art Accident in Dumbo
Apr 7, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm| Free
Creaddictive in collaboration with The Espejo Organization for the Arts and Rabbithole Projects are honored to present Serendipia, a one-night-only exhibition featuring photographs, painting and live performances from international artists that found themselves in the same place at the same time. Using the concept of chance as a starting point, each artists will present a piece of their current work that responds to the nature of this fortuitous encounter.
Judith Samper, also known as Jusa, will present a series of eight spherical photographs that aim to capture the complete spirit of a moment. Jusa finds inspiration in the everyday, turning mundane scenarios into fantastic 360 degree photographs of deserted landscapes that resemble unknown planets hidden on our commonplace. Jusa uses multiples cameras to generate enchanting and captivating scenes that transports the viewer to surreal worlds for them to discover.
Coming from a more figurative tradition, Andres Alvarez’s work is a result of his fascination with psychology and how individuals interpret abstract concepts differently. Exploring the diverse effects that perception has on our imagination, Alvarez creates balanced interactions between controlled lines and shades, between variations of dark colors and undefined liquid shapes. Alvarez blurs the line between light and dark, presenting works that intrigues and challenges the viewer with the sensuality of female forms.
María Providencia Casanovas, bases her artistic practice on her most immediate experiences and activities of her daily life. Casanovas will show two different series of photographs and monoprints that explore the relationship she establishes with her living and working spaces. Using black and white as a way to reveal identity and absence, Casanovas’ work centers on how we build identity in regard to others.
Offering a more abstract universe, Lorenzo Sanjuan will present paintings and three-dimensional sculptural piece that aim to illustrate multiple perspectives under the same view. Based on a contemporary cubist interpretation of the self and the inner life, Sanjuan focus his current work on the complicated task of creating a self-portrait. Following the longstanding art tradition of introspection, San Juan explores the deconstruction of common objects searching for new spaces inside of old forms.
The show will also count with the live acts of Jose Callen, Darko Saric, and LRD.
