Opening Reception: Saturday, March 30 from 6pm to 9pm
Special performance April 27 from 2pm to 5pm
Solo Exhibition of new work created for Otis Street Arts Project by Heloisa Escudero.
Every human being follows a unique life path, with no two paths being alike. All of these paths are governed by countless life equations, where all of our phobias, fears and anxieties are parameters and variables that define a part of this equation, and the values of which may determine our learning directions. The solutions to these multivariable and complicated equations are held inside each of us, we hold all the secrets to our unique self. This exhibition aims at the realization of the (unique) self. By direct visualization of our phobias, it makes our parameters explicit. And by creation of rituals that provide positive thinking, it aims at finding solutions to our life equations. One of the main goals is that the viewer actively integrates their life path while interacting with the art.
