Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

From Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lucía Warck-Meister brings a site-specific installation project to the Point of Contact Gallery and to Syracuse University. Lucía is especially attracted to the vulnerability of memory: what happens when its components are altered and the flow of our thinking, our abilities and the sense of who we are, are interrupted. Fragility and transformations are part of the alchemy that informs that protective shelter that we call "identity."

For her installation Artemisia, Lucía takes as a springboard the story of Artemisia Gentileschi and how the terrible events she endured during her life as a female artist changed the way she saw herself and dramatically changed the subjects of her paintings.

Lucía now creates a highly ornate space by using red satin, beads, metallic polyester, charcoal and glass. Materials that contrast their intrinsic characteristics but nevertheless are united in a powerful embrace.
