The departing point for this second duo show of Angyvir Padilla and Yoel Pytowski is their common interest in migration and diaspora through the lens of geology. A tale on the journey of one rock, from its underground birth until its erosion and re-birth by sedimenting, structures the show.
In their solo practices, Padilla and Pytowski have shown a particular interest in immersive installations. For Padilla, those can be objects about very mundane structures, ready to be activated by the artist or to submerge the viewer in a holistic environment. Pytowski has been particularly interested in intervening in the architecture of exhibition spaces - reconfiguring, rebuilding, and re-imagining them.
