This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents series of recent mixed-media works and a premier video by assemblage and sculptural artist Naury Joaquin. Joaquin explores feminism, nostalgia and decadence, set in a symbolic and allegorical scenario in which two worlds collide: the search for the past-a kind of incomplete mourning; and bittersweet longing in tandem with the question of transformation through the ever-present passing of time. The nostalgic and surreal atmosphere present in her artwork is driven by a feminine principle: the Mother Goddess, who is the giver of both life and death, which is equally apparent in her work. This leads to a world of imagery that is simultaneously disturbing and intriguing, while in constant transformation. In these moments Joaquin's work becomes layered with multifaceted echoes surrounded by a sinister romanticism.
