RESIDENCY: 29 JULY  -  18 AUGUST 2024
EXHIBITION: 17 - 30 AUGUST 2024

Natalia González Martín’s work is preoccupied with the symbolic aspect of objects and their veneration, explored through mythology, fables and stories, popular culture and subtle imprints of her own personal experience. Her latest work takes direct inspiration from her own iconodule Catholic upbringing which was saturated with images, icons and representations. Using the poetry of this symbolism, she recreates ancient narratives through a contemporary lens by creating a mosaic of sublime and mythological scenes. Fusing the ecstatic with the mundane, and the divine with the secular, her otherworldly yet identifiably human figures gesture towards other ways of desiring or being in the world.
