ektor garcia: raw material

See at your leisure | On line

Through his artistic practice, ektor garcia (b. 1985, Red Bluff, CA) challenges the hierarchies of gendered and racialized work, combining a queer punk sensibility with the artisanal traditions of Mexico, his ancestral homeland.

For his exhibition at Henry Art GalleryGarcia has worked with University of Washington faculty, staff, and students Ceramics and Metal Arts Building to create a series of new linked chain sculptures in ceramic, copper and glass. Composed of interlocking individual links, these chains will form a series of mutual and contingent relationships through their constituent parts as they suspend and drape the entire double-height volume of the gallery. embedded among the chained sculptures, garcia will install a collection of objects from his mexico studio, as well as crocheted copper-wire butterflies that escape the confines of the gallery and inhabit the interstitial spaces of the museum.
