On View: Santuarios Gestion Desmadres
September 23 - November 18
Cuchifritos Gallery is pleased to partner with The Immigrant Artist Biennial to present the storefront project Santuarios Gestion Desmadres. Viewable at all times from the gallery’s street-facing windows along Norfolk Street, Coralina Rodriguez Meyer’s installation presents two Mother Mold body casts and a Linea Negra photograph within a domestic environment framed by tropical greenery.
The retablo, or tableaux, creates a street-side sanctuary of neon rituals, fertile flora, and endangered fauna vibrating in Latinx and Caribbean diaspora immigrant communities. Centering Q+BIPOC ancestral life-cycle traditions, Rodriguez Meyer’s multimedia practice and community organizing celebrates doulas that deliver lifesaving reproductive healthcare and matriarchal interdependence.
