29 June – 19 July 2013 / Quartair, The Hague /
Exhibition ‘Coleccionismo y otras Interpretaciones” Melissa Cruz Garcia & Laura Pardo
The show emerges from the connections between the artists’ works, as well from their particular interests. Both use the recollection of common household products that usually end discarded by society. This has been employed by the artists as a tool to re-think, transform and reconfigure the objects themselves and also their cultural meaning.
On the occasion of her exhibition in Quartair, Laura will be swapping vegetable and tropical fruit plants that she germinated in her studio for material or immaterial goods. Whoever wants to take home a little plant may do so by getting involved in this non-monetary exchange!
During the exhibition in Quartair, Melissa will be showing drawings, installations and self-made machines. As also, will be giving a one day long workshop on the 12th of July (from 13.00 till 17.00) on animation with drawings, where the participants are also invited to reflect and think in terms of obsolete technology.
Thanks to the support of The Colombian Embassy in The Netherlands.
