“THIS SIDE OF LOST”
September 7 - October 22
Artist: Häsler R. Gómez
Reception: October 13, 5 pm
Artist Talk: 5:30 pm
Häsler R. Gómez (h.r.g.) was born in Guatemala City, Guatemala in 1993, but has lived in the United States since the age of four. As an undocumented-queer-man, his work predominantly investigates issues of personal, political, and social desire, and probes the complexities and connections between language, history, immigration, gender, and oppression.
The works that make up “THIS SIDE OF LOST” reference the construction site, the home, and sacred spaces. They utilize mythical retellings of historical and fictional origin stories, as strategies for generating new narratives with the potential to recontextualize and bridge the present, past, and future in non-linear ways. “THIS SIDE OF LOST” is the fourth installment from the series “IN THE LAND OF MILK AND HONEY.”
