Pia Camil: Split Wall

Saturday 14 July 2018Sunday 07 October 2018

Textile installation, ceramics and video by Mexican artist Pia Camil. The exhibition explores consumerism and globalisation through works that are playful, interactive and participatory. The gallery space is divided by a large curtain constructed from t-shirts originally manufactured in Latin America for export and then illicitly sold back to Mexico to be resold in street markets. Camil will be presenting new commissions including a usable hammock made out of discarded jeans sewn together, creating intimate and social spaces within the gallery. The show also features Camil's ceramic masks and a newly commissioned video produced in collaboration with writer Gabriela Jauregui.
