London-based mostly, Chilean-born artist Livia Marin has a brand new present arising at Home of Propellers referred to as Nature Morte, through which she explores restoration and restore of modest historic objects via the becoming a member of of 2D and 3D.
From the press launch:
Livia Marin’s second exhibition at Home of Propellers brings collectively elements of portray, images, ceramic, textile, and sculpture. Underneath the formal rule of Nature Morte, the French time period for Nonetheless Life, Marin appropriates this style traditionally relegated to secondary areas, supposedly missing in greatness and scarcely ever displayed within the huge salons. Once we consider the Nonetheless Life as a piece for interpretation, we see how Marin employs the style through the use of its shortcomings, its ostensibly marginality, and its modest anonymity. The work turns into an train in precariousness and its prospects, in addition to an allegory for the Latin American contingency.
For Livia Marin to discover the composition of the Nonetheless Life is to consider the hierarchy of objects: each their spatial, social and political orders. And in addition to provide a spot to all that’s forgotten and forged apart in aesthetic apply. The stitching method utilized to the images is said to a system of restoration and restore. In a up to date tradition of concurrently shopping for and binning, these objects are a strong reminder that no a part of materials tradition can escape the ideological connotations of worth.
