Gallery Wendi Norris presents Ana Teresa Fernández’s third solo exhibition, “Of Bodies and Borders." Fernández calls attention to the plight of the thousands of migrants through a new body of work, including video, painting, drawing, and installation. Pivoting from her previous work on U.S./Mexico border to the Mediterranean Sea, this five-year project was filmed in various locations off the island of Poros, Greece. All of the works in the exhibition stem from Fernández’s performance in the depths of the ocean. In the video, “Drawn Below," she dons her signature little black dress and heels, weighted down with 13-pound weights. While submerged, she wrestles with a bed sheet for hours, exemplifying an enduring physical and psychological performance. Her large-scale documentary oil paintings illustrate her suspended underwater: swimming, floating, and plummeting into a dark, eerie abyss. The meticulous layering of color and brushwork further emphasize the complexity and tension between water, cloth, and the artist’s body. In the series of documentary drawings titled, “Gauging Gravity," Fernández’s identity is eventually erased, only recognized by bodily fragments inside a void. This new work observes what exists within liminal spaces, seeking what is lost in the margins, between light and shadow, positive and negative space, heavy and buoyant, seen and unseen. Fernández seeks to champion the invisible, unrecognized, undervalued, and in danger of sinking into oblivion. As Gallery Wendi Norris’ fourth off-site exhibition and Fernández’s east coast debut, “Of Bodies and Borders” will be presented at Mosaic Miami, a non-profit organization in Miami, within the vibrant arts community of Little Haiti, which demonstrates parallel histories of migration and sea crossings. Join us for the opening on November 2, 2018 from 6-8 pm. Exhibition times are Thursday-Saturday, 11-5 pm.
