Burning with Joy / Saelia Aparicio

25/11/2016 - 23/12/2016

Burning with Joy /Saelia Aparicio

Burning with joy
In this installation by Saelia Aparicio we will find a dystopian narrative inspired by the J.G Ballard novel and David Chronenberg film Crash (1996), the anime Akira and the theory of the abject formulated by Julia Kristeva.
We will find a Sci-fi Costumbrism [ the literary or pictorial interpretation of local everyday life, mannerisms, and customs] creating a landscape where dismembered car parts blend with body-like shapes.
