A Form that Resembles Join us this Friday, February 7th @ 6:00 PM Maria Colombo Art Opening Reception for her Solo Show at Expressiones: "A Form that Resembles." Maria is a conceptual artist whose sculptures, and installations challenge the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience. Her work absorbs the tradition of the art of memory and is embedded into her daily practice. This personal follow-up and the rebirth of a past tradition are important as an act of meditation that is the core of her work. Guido Garaycochea Expressiones
“To deeply explore these objects, I need the stories and events of which they are part. Science fiction literature and all its appliances, poetry and sound are raised as references. But also, the history of art, the drawings of the first machines and the first inventors and their excitement about artifactual innovation. The coordinates play between plausibility and fiction allows me to immerse myself in the possibility of discovering the utopian universe of these objects, inventing their own archeology, their own geographical and historical context.”
