Firelei Báez "Appendix to a Memory Table" @ Richard Heller Gallery, LAJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 04 Dec 2013
Maybe you can't make it down to Miami to see what Richard Heller Gallery has in store in their booth at Miami Project, but what you can do in the Southern California region is Heller's exhibition showcase of Firelei Baez' "Appendix to a Memory Table." The show will run through December 14, 2013, with the series of works exploring the intersection between private memory and public spaces, delving into her interest in the corporeality of history and culture.
"While in residence at an ex-military base at The Headlands in Northers California, she created a range of paintings and works on paper that navigate and react to the sublime landscape and it's hyper gendered history. Inspired by a desire to recreate a memory beyond physical attributes, Báez uses paintings and drawings as a means of relaying the nuances and immediacy of a particular moment."
