    Reclaimed by Nature

    November 4, 2016 –
    January 8, 2017

    Guest Curated by Claudia Arozqueta

     

    Reclaimed by Nature is the first in a series of collaborative exhibitions at Blue Star Contemporary curated by participants of Sala Diaz’ Casa Chuck Residency, an international invitational program for curators and critics.

     

    Featuring artists: Alejandro Almanza Pereda; Dulce Chacón; Daniela Edburg; Joey Fauerso; Buster Graybill; Jasmyne Graybill; Arturo Hernández Alcázar; Sofía Taboas; Raul Ortega Ayala; Kristy Perez; Ethel Shipton.

     

    The relationship between humankind and nature leans toward a dichotomous visualization in which both entities are independent from—and non-contingent upon—each another. This conceptualization, forged in industrial age furnaces, leads to obsessive attempts to master and control nature, but this perceived binary is fallacious. Mutual feedback between the natural environment and human civilization is unavoidable: what effects one always reverberates in the other, as we dramatically witness on a day-to-day basis.

     

    Featuring the work of Mexico City- and San Antonio-based artists from multiple generations, Reclaimed by Nature reflects upon the problematic coexistence and fragile boundaries between human industriousness and the natural world. Exploring environmental interventions of man-made artifacts and spaces, the works on display examine and celebrate natural forces as a timely reminder to attain a much-needed balance between what we create and what exists, despite of us.
