Cristine's Secret Garden

Cristine Brache: Cristine's Secret Garden

Meet the artist and join Locust Projects in celebrating the opening of Cristine's Secret Garden! Refreshments provided by our friends at Concrete Beach Brewery

Locust Projects is proud to present Cristine's Secret Garden, an expansive new body of work contained within a site-specific installation by Miami and Toronto-based artist Cristine Brache. Exploring boundaries of private and public space in relation to womanhood, Brache creates an immersive environment inspired by her childhood home and brings a hyperreal version of its front yard into the gallery. Referencing her Puerto Rican and Cuban heritage, the exhibition centers around porcelain shrines of the maternal figures in the artist's life. Similar to the Santero statues that adorn lawns throughout Miami, and using Santeria's codification of Orishas and their attributes as a template, Brache humanizes and preserves the central figures in her life, celebrating their many facets. Architectural elements from the home will be transformed through unique stylistic and material choices. In its totality, the artist says the exhibition is a “syncretized constellation of my personal experience, a diary of sorts, that adopts a unique facet of Miami’s cultural landscape in form.”

Outage

Eva Wylie, Jennifer Levonian: Outage

Meet the artists and join Locust Projects in celebrating the opening of Outage! Refreshments provided by our friends at Concrete Beach Brewery.

Philadelphia-based artists Jennifer Levonian and Eva Wylie are collaborating on a new video installation utilizing Levonian's signature cut paper animation technique, which incorporates deftly rendered watercolors into short films that wryly depict prescient social narratives and Eva Wylie's unique printmaking techniques.

Levonian combines documentary and fiction as she crafts her wry and witty storylines, often relying on documentary-style interviews with protagonists so that their voices live through the characters she creates. Levonian paints the elements of each scene before cutting out particular pieces and moving them frame-by-frame during the laborious filming process. 

Wylie's unique graphic dance juxtaposes organic and synthetic imagery, to create enigmatic work with a signature iconography that intimates how humanity and its detritus merge in both familiar and unexpected encounters.
