This exhibition has two distinct spaces/installations both relating to the memories: Past Lives Garden and Invented landscape
“Past lives garden” is space with real and fabricated memories of our past as a reflection on our place in the universe. The installation in this space is monochromatic, and poetic reflection on the nature and opposing forces between the Sun and Moon as symbolic embodiment of yin vs. yang.
“Invented landscape” is hypothetic future environment created with plastic and all man made materials in vibrant and fluorescent colors, seemingly upbeat and childish. Walking through a door/ gate from the garden to the invented landscape a viewer will be transported from past into a possible future with no natural recourses where the plastic and genetically modified food will dominate.
Groundspace Project is an artist-run alternative space located just east of the 4th Street bridge in downtown Los Angeles.
Exhibition hours are Friday and Saturday, 1 to 6 pm.
