An installation and performance inspired by the rose windows from the Virgin of Angustias church, in Valladolid, Spain.
InRivers Gallery invited Teresa Cacho and I to have an exhibition in their space in Brooklyn, New York. Having been in New York for a short time, we were missing many of the common experiences of home. A typical memory from our childhood is visiting church with family, where the natural light streams through rose windows.
Our goal was to recreate that experience through the digital language that is more native to us nowadays. We mapped the window and duplicated its shape in wood at the gallery. We mirrored the light rays utilizing wool and black fluorescent, and drew digitally the portrait of Virgin of Angustias.
The show opened with an event in which we performed live music and video consisting on renders of the Virgin of Angustias. The footage also integrated the original plans and design process, creating a geometric architecture in motion.
