Visiting: Andrea Garcia // 27.07.17

Last week we visited the studio of the former pilot Andrea Garcia Vasquez (Mixed Media; USA). She uses textiles as a mimetic device, and as a basis for psycho-geographic experiments. We spoke of her approach, of the adoption and manipulation of nature, topophilia, and the status of craft in contemporary galleries. We are happy to connect former residents with our recent artists. Many thanks Andrea, for your continued participation in your program!

That same evening, we had the chance to visit exhibitions at Potemka Gallery and D21, two contemporary art spaces in the Lindenau neighborhood.

Visiting: Andrea Garcia Vasquez

This week we had the chance to discover the process of tapestry art during our visit to the studio of Andrea Garcia Vasquez, formerly a resident at our own studios. After deciding to stay in Leipzig, Andrea enrolled as a media student at the HGB. This studio visit provoked conversations around topics of migration, the subject of home, and the relations between nature and humanity. We also discussed the implications inherent to ephemeral art in her new series. Thank you Andrea!
