You lookin at Me-Damasco at Chamizal

There are two ambitious artists currently on view at the Museo de Archaeologia at Chamizal in juarez. Both have fairly ambitious philosophical or psychological undepinnings to their work.
In the first room, Miroslava Basaldua Flores has an installation called Entre Jacarandas y Sena concerning itself with pre-consciousness. It seems he is trying to recreate the feeling of what happens before we are fully aware; of what happens just at the point when we are beginning to think or sense. There are large nets encicling the room, and a series of small out of focus photographs showing someone appearing to be just on the verge of waking up. There is a small net box containing a piece of rotted fruit and cuaght in another area some crude sketches. Again the idea seeimingly to appeal to all of our senses on a primeval pre-conscious level.

Fairly ambitious undertaking and here providing evocative images. Show is up only until June 3rd.-David Sokolec
