Frances Gallardo at MECANISMOS - MECA Art Fair, San Juan, PR
Localidades Alternas/Alternate Locations is a two-person project curated by Sofia Reeser del Rio as part of MECANISMOS, platform where emerging galleries present the work of artists who have entered the market after 2006. Gallardo and Morales are both Puerto Rican emerging artists living in New York. The artists work in a critical self-reflection about what constitute a self, and collective identity. Laser cut mosquitoes and city amplified tracks, wearable objects and a delicate yet engulfing installation become material studies of cultural cues.
