Link & Pin Gallery presents Andrea Muñoz Martinez: "Dogs Heal in Borderlandia" opening day
Link & Pin Gallery will present "Dogs Heal in Borderlandia," featuring visual and performance artist Andrea Muñoz Martinez.
Borderlandia is a mythical place created by the artist, a reimagined borderland full of life and movement. Through painting, drawing, video and performance, Muñoz Martinez invites people to contemplate the beauty that exists in a land where people negotiate their place, thrive and struggle, and resist the idea of unjust boundaries.
Muñoz Martinez recently began inserting dogs into her scenes of Borderlandia. Portraits of dogs infuse humor, comfort, and joy into difficult but urgent realities about the borderlands. Entering the gallery one sees dogs heads and bodies becoming part of the landscape of the border space and representing the energy exchanged when a perimeter is crossed, moved, or destroyed.
The exhibition will remain on display through April 18.
