Pillars of Creation / In the Bedroom
Boîte Noire Gallery and 4 Art Management present a solo exhibition by contemporary artist Javiera Estrada featuring two new bodies of work: Pillars of Creation and In the Bedroom as well as a site-specific installation and performance art piece.
Pillars of Creation is a photograph of the interstellar gas and dust in the Eagle Nebula some 7,000 light years from Earth. It is a place where stars are born and simultaneously eroding by the light of nearby stars. This new series is an exploration of consciousness and the ever expanding world of the universe within.
In the Bedroom, is an intimate perspective of the space between the subconscious dreamworld and fantasy. Portrayed through the feminine archetype, this personal journey is a kaleidoscopic explosion of color and imagination interwoven and juxtaposed in the stillness of the environment.
