Nela Garzon Art Exhibition @ Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston
Nov 2 2020 – Jan 3 2021 all-day
Nela Garzon Art Exhibition @ Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston

About the exhibition

Made in China

Through three different artistic disciplines, such as fiber art, sculpture and painting, Nela Garzón questions the mercantile and disposable paradigm of objects in conflict with cultural identities.

“The body of work produced for this project inquires about the wide effects of consumerism and mass production and comments on the loss of cultural identity in the hands of globalization and industrialization. This global problem supported by us (consumers), besides devastating the environment, affects everyone but mostly minorities who have been maintaining the cultural heritage and diversity of the world alive.”

About the exhibition

Family Overlap
When I open my eyes I photograph them; when I close my eyes, I listen to them
For 25 years I looked at them, I portrayed them, I captured them, in order to keep them forever. Immigrating and maintaining close relationships seemed to be two incompatible concepts. But they turned out not to be.
I watch them hanging on my walls and listen to their recorded voices, our conversations. And suddenly the language, what they say, no longer matters. It doesn’t matter if they look at me. It doesn’t matter if they are no longer here.
It’s about that feeling that you get when you close your eyes and you don’t see them anymore, you feel them…

My project includes between 20 and 25 portraits and an audio file looped in speakers placed in the four corners of the exhibit room. The pictures are printed on 18 x 24 in giclee paper.
The chief concept of the project highlights the relevance of family and culture in spite of the meaningful change resulting from immigration. Evidently, such a project resonates with the mission of the IHCH.
