Alinka Echeverria - 'Fieldnotes'
Sara Kay Gallery, New York, USA
Soloshow: December 12, 2018 - January 26, 2019
‘Fieldnotes’, curated by Maya Benton (Consulting Curator at the International Center of Photography in New York), is Alinka’s first solo exhibition in New York. Through diverse media including collage, glass works and artist’s film, she reflects on how constructed images of women have been carried forward through time, by way of visual codes and photographic techniques. This research project was initiated during the BMW artist residency at the musée Nicéphore Niépce in Chalon-sur-Saône, France. Intrigued by the biography of the inventor Nicéphore Niépce and the complexity of the colonial archives of the museum, Alinka looks back at the origins of the medium from an anthropological and feminist perspective.
Part of this ongoing project was previously exhibited as a solo exhibition commissioned by BMW Art & Culture at the Les Rencontres d'Arles and Paris Photo in 2016. It then travelled onto the Musée de la Céramique in Rouen and was shown in a travelling group exhibition curated by FOAM Museum in Amsterdam. In 2019, it will be exhibited as a solo show at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts as part of MOMENTA, Biennale de l'image 2019.
