Crossing the Line :A Space by Tanya Aguiñiga
January 23 – May 8, 2011
In an upcoming exhibition, Crossing the Line: A Space by Tanya Aguiñiga, at the Craft and Folk Art Museum from January 23 to May 8, 2011, Aguiñiga will create a spontaneous, site-specific structure. Made up of criss-crossed yarn with floating woven pieces that are intersected with furniture made specifically for the exhibition, the work will experiment with boundaries and suspension. The result will be a sort of cave where visitors can seek respite, with a mix of the functional and the purely aesthetic—a connection of disparate planes.
“Having grown up on the US/Mexico border, I am naturally drawn to the beauty of the unplanned, the creation of environment using non-traditional techniques and finding inspiration in changing perspectives,” she says.
