Justin De Demko, curator and director of Castor Gallery, is proud to present Thinking About Everything, But Then Again, I Was Thinking About Nothing, a mixed-media installation by Tamara Santibañez. Located in Room #2203 , SPRING/BREAK Art Show, 4 Times Square (Entrance on 43rd Street) the installation will be on viewFebruary 28 (Preview Day) through March 6, 11am-6pm.
Santibañez is widely known for her innovative combination of Chicano imagery with fetish iconography, practicing her skills on human canvas by day, working alongside Scott Campbell at his legendary Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn.
In Thinking About Everything, Santibañez recreates a semi-autobiographical bedroom based on memory using ballpoint pen on paper, fabric and ceramics, to produce replicas of band posters, records, tapes, t-shirts, and punk accessories such as studded belts and bracelets. Santibañez aims to create a type of archaeological site where viewers are invited to investigate and mine for clues about the resident’s identity.
