Blood, History & the Body

the Art of Silvia Gruner

Eye Gallery (now closed)

Mexican artist Silvia Gruner’s work moves fluidly between many mediums–drawing, sculpture, film, video, performance–to explore personal and cultural/historical notions of authenticity critical to our time. Elemental in Gruner’s work is the place of the human body in the material world, as “transmitter and receptor of energy; the body as absorbent material, as motor; the body as variant of sound and movement; the body as receptacle of memory.” Tonight Gruner will show several super-8 films, the video El Vuelo, and a new performance.
