pt.2 Gallery is pleased to announce “En el país de la memoria” (In the Country of Memory), a captivating duo exhibition featuring work by Liz Hernández and her late great aunt, Argelia Rebollo.
The show presents a collection of paintings on linen by Rebollo, all of which have never been exhibited before. Hernández created a series of sculptural works in rusted metal and stone in response to her paintings, letters, and relics. In addition to this new material exploration, she developed an installation piece using microcontrollers for the first time.
The creative conversation between Hernández and Rebollo bridges the gap between the past and present, exploring themes of memory, selfhood, and the internal struggles of those who leave their country of origin.
