The exhibition El sol y su sombra by Sara García conceptually brings together the references that have been present in her practice in recent years: her interest in the metapictoric, the aesthetic and conceptual references to Spanish still life painting, the body as an agent of participation and as a space for performativity, and the possibilities of food as a space to activate all of the above.
El sol y su sombra is a mystical and mysterious journey that proposes an approach to her work from proximity and intimacy. Sara’s intention is to open and expand the possibilities of this relationship with the public, using food and transferring the pictorial to a spatial experience.
Sara proposes a subtle exercise, surrounded by mystery, within a careful monochromatic universe in which all the senses, the body itself, are invited to participate. The exhibition moves away from conceptualized knowledge or experience to gamble with the “rejected knowledge”, that is, knowledge that is discovered through non-intellectual processes, particularly the act of eating.
This exhibition is part of Proyecto1, an individual exhibitions program of Spanish artists living in Mexico that seeks to showcase the the visual arts trends and talents in Mexico City.
Sara García (Gijón, España, 1983)
She explores the idea of rejected knowledge, that is, veiled knowledge that is discovered through non-intellectual processes, related to intuition or personal experience. His work links the painting of still life with the participatory, mainly through the use of food. From different approaches, it seeks to generate intimate and direct sensory experiences that reflect on the idea of hospitality and therefore on our relationship with the other, the unknown.
She studied at the Universidad de Vigo and at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, she participated in the PES of SOMA in Mexico City. Some of the exhibitions in which she has participated are: Una rosa tiene forma de rosa. Oficios e instintos, Casa del Lago, Mexico City; La Isla, Isleta del Lago Mayor, Bosque de Chapultepec, Mexico City; Universo vídeo. Geo-políticas, LABoral, Gijón. Her work has also been exhibited individually and collectively in Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin and Mexico City.
