An exhibition of sculpture, installation and performance by Bárbara Sánchez-Kane. The sculptural works of Sánchez-Kane make up a collection that goes all the way from fantasy to reality. Influenced by Mexican contemporaneity and folklore, and leading both to their most blatant expression, Sánchez-Kane creates a visual universe that is home to the rejected people. The inhabitants of this world are not ashamed of all that we have been taught to hide: fear, scruples, ugliness, miscegenation and brutality. Their darkest beings have been mined to heal them, and Sánchez-Kane has made them ambassadors of a nation that does not belong to beauty, but to courage and painful sensitivity.
The creative work of Sánchez-Kane in fashion and all expressions of her contemporary artistic practice, powerful and furious, breaks paradigms of esthetic, sexuality and social and cultural conventions from Mexico and abroad. Her work is restless, and full of soul and flesh.
Licenciado will be hosting her first solo exhibition, opening September 6th 2019 -7pm, during Gallery Weekend Mexico. Until November 1st.
