Fatiga Material, 2011   Exhibition: Site-specific painting installation at the Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, MA  I was invited by curator Liz Munsell to participate in “Close Distance,” a show that took place at the Mills Gallery in Boston. The group showcased the work of Latin American artists working in the Boston area. From the beginning of the project, we ran into the impossibility of finding a common voice and a unifying image. Fatiga Material (Material Fatigue) was a site-specific installation occupying half of the main gallery that attempted to comment on exhibition politics and the proliferation and abuse of cultural images taken out of context. My goal for this work was to turn the exhibition space into an images of the ruin of itself.
