DORF presents "Figures" opening receptions
"Figures" is an exhibition of new and existing works by Gabo Martini, Barbara Miñarro, Teruko Nimura, and Maja Ruznic, four artists who address memory, identity, history and transgenerational trauma.
- Gabo Martini presents a selection of large vessels adorned with hand carved poetry addressing trauma and shedding light on truth.
- Barbara Miñarro creates a site-specific installation utilizing the tactile memory of clothing, earth, and physical body to express the emotional journey of immigration.
- Another site-specific installation by Teruko Nimura responds to the threat of our destructive actions and their consequences, contemplating the legacy of nuclear power from the atomic bomb to Fukushima and the dangers of radiation pollution in our oceans.
- Maja Ruznic shows a series of abstract paintings that reveal ghostly, discomforting, fluid figures that seem to appear from nothingness, shaped by the stains of memory. These are presented alongside her contorted soft, tactile sculptures that appear frustrated by their own form, inhabiting Ruznic’s ancestors' clothing.
Following the opening receptions, the exhibit will be on display through November 3.
