Exhibition of Mexican artist Yosi Anaya

3 Mar 2015

Friday 6 of March at 6pm to 28th of March

You are cordially invited to a preview of the first solo exhibition of Mexican artist, Yosi Anaya, in Ireland. Continuity Re-inscribed/Continuidad Reinscrita will officially open on Friday 6 of March at 6pm by His Excellency Carlos García de Alba Ambassador of Mexico to Ireland. The exhibition will run until the 28th of March.

Yosi Anaya is a Mexican artist and an eminent authority on indigenous textiles of Latin America. Her installation will include textile works and various video based on research on the huipil, an historic and culturally significant garment of Mexican heritage, and will offer insights into the daily life of Mesoamerican women. Many of her installation objects are made through close involvement with traditional craftswomen and men, using techniques such as back-strap weaving. Yosi Anaya celebrates not only the process of making but also the interrelationships established and cultivated through her interaction with traditional makers of her native Mexico.

Mexican photographer, Sidarta Corral, will also exhibit in CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery. There will be a talk by the artist on 20 March at 6pm and the exhibition also runs from 7 - 28 March. His body of work is an interpretation of nature and reality in an abstract way using a technique call ICM (intentional camera movement) creating images full of textures and colors, distorting what is in front of the camera making the result either completely abstract or with an impressionistic look, all with a pictorial style transmitting different feelings and sensations to the spectator making their imagination fly.
