MATERIA PRIMA at La Estación Espacial, Santurce

Added on by Javier Bosques.

Materia Prima brings together recent work by Javier Bosques, Jorge González and Beatriz Santiago-Muñoz. Artworks on display explore the exuberant tropical flora and environment to reveal ideological layers underlying the local landscape. The native vegetation, natural fibers and sunlight, for example, are employed as raw material (materia prima) through artistic agency. Through video, sculpture and botanical material, the exhibition presents instances where natural phenomena is transformed into cultural content. The artworks inhabit the space that separates matter from material.
