(Im) balances, solo exhibition Gabriela Torres Ruiz, Gallery Brockstedt, Berlin, Germany.

The exhibition titled (Im)balances, brings together three work collections; Silence (2009-2015), Unfinished Dreams (2015), and Origin (2014-2016). The common theme running through all three of them is the relationship between the raw earth formations and the man-made structures. In contrast to natural places, which are shaped by the constant rhythm of nature, the history of buildings is more likely defined by disruption. The interventions of their inhabitants or users create traces, which overlay each over time and can be read as archaeological layers. Those layers exist in a physical sense and illustrate in a comprehensible way a framework, within which changes have taken place. The fate of these man-made structures returning to their initial state, where nature regains its lost place. The decay and destruction of buildings become a symbol of the continuum of time.

I look forward to welcome you on the occasion of the exhibition opening on Saturday the 11.02.2017, from 6pm to 9pm. Exhibition from 11.02. to 15.04.2017.

Interview with Gabriela Torres Ruiz, Aesthetica Art Prize 2016, nominated artist.

Shortlisted for this year’s Aesthetica Art Prize, Gabriela Torres Ruiz is a Mexican-German artist based in Berlin.                   

Her diptych #1, from the series Silence, was exhibited as part of the Aesthetica Art Prize 2016 showcase at York St Mary’s earlier this year. In this work, she uses photography to preserve her own personal experience of silence, in nature as well as in spaces of disintegration and decay, to indicate the inevitable and progressive passage of linear time. We speak to Gabriela about her practice to offer an insight into the themes surrounding her work and inspiration.
