Last weekend saw the Los Angeles return of Mexico City-based Saner with the exhibition Catharsis at New Image Art Gallery. Curated by Medvin Sobio of 33third Los Angeles/Mid-City Arts, Catharsis represents the final act in a cycle of solo exhibitions Saner has been developing, where each one has looked to generate an emotional change over the spectator, guiding the viewer towards a path of rebirth, freedom & purification.
In this, the final act, the viewer is the element that gives life to the exhibition. Catharsis will be a space that will remain wrapped in a psycho magical act of healing. With an installation, performance piece, paintings, and works on paper; this collective act of creation, of encounter & confrontation is what will generate the liberation of the spectator.
