Opening Reception: Thursday, March 5, 6 - 9pm

In Floaters, Henriquez combines material gathered from popular and glamour culture, with digitized and magnified images from contemporary media and art history. In stacking and re-assembling these materials and images in figurative and totemic-like structures, she explores the multiple histories, various beliefs and at times contradictory notions of self that emerge. Floaters, the title of the exhibition, references not only bits of optical debris but also the culturally conditioned conceptual spots that linger and inform our vision of ourselves as human, gendered, and embodied entities.
