Antonio Pulgarin: Lost Throughout the Pages (Whispers of The Caballeros)
September 8th – October 10th, 2021

Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 8, 2021 | 5-8 PM

“In my practice I use photography, photographic collage and photo based installations to create conceptually focused works that tackle the themes of cultural and queer identity, memory, and displacement. These works utilize the family archive, patterned fabrics and additional printed source materials. The final two-dimensional compositions often incorporate cut out patterns to obscure sections of the original archival image, often blocking out an entire figure. What we see is an incomplete family portrait, intentionally erased persons, deconstructed moments and new memories. In my work, elements of nostalgia, personal narrative – relating to my heritage, and notions of masculinity are all present. The collaged elements remind the viewer that these images have been intervened, brought to the present and reimagined.” – Antonio Pulgarin
