Event Description

Elisa Garcia de la Huerta’s exhibition, Vibrations/Vibraciones explores the nuances of intimate human interaction, in communion with notions of domesticity, gender and sensuality. Presenting a mixed media textile installation, Garcia de la Huerta constructs a safe space that is swaddled in swaths of texturally rich, color saturated hues, stitched with painterly fluidity. Her body of work acts as a second skin; it stimulates tactile and emotional connection within a public sphere, while impressing memories of interpersonal histories and moments.

Taken into a contemporary context, she performs a perceptual shift from fabric as an archive of tradition, to a medium for reflection on personal space and closeness. Through her wall-mounted fabric pieces, Garcia de la Huerta utilizes remanent materials. Her work retains a distinct sensitivity to their other possible lives, bearing traces of traditional techniques— meditative healing and rituals of the home — that that have connected generations of women together. Three photographs also on view document a fabric intervention in abandoned green spaces. She marks fences with ribbon as ephemeral gestures, illustrating the non-literal spaces between our internal and external consciousness.

Garcia de la Huerta builds on multi-layered textures with multimedia, sewing together sensory rich moments with audio visual vocabulary. Viewers are invited to experience her video installation by entering a tent like structure, amplifying sensations of intimacy within a larger and otherwise anonymous environment. In disorienting surges, her video work reveals glimpses of domestic daily ritual, provocatively woven into imagery of bucolic natural environments.
