EVENT DESCRIPTION

Oca Villamiel conjures a series of works reflecting on the tenuous balance between the natural world and the perils of taking hold over its rhythms.

The exhibit reflects discrete ecologies: cubical constructions, hinting at the strata of excavated plots; collections of transient detritus, preserved as enclosed containers and video clips. Such works take time to complete, with the seasons. One needs to take a closer look at how each is built from patiently collecting and putting together the most fragile of things: the lightest of feathers, harvested daily; pages of books, salvaged from floods; the preserved remains of thousands of bees, gathered as memento mori after being exterminated en masse.

Through tracing things interconnected across nature, Villamiel attempts to coax from the viewer a sensitivity to the world beyond. By salvaging quiet stories of passings, Villamiel transforms material traces of loss into things that live to face a brand new day.
