The Pearl – Enrique Martinez Celaya – Sante Fe

July 13–October 13, 2013

 

SITE Santa Fe
1606 Paseo de Peralta
Santa Fe, NM

In The Pearl, Cuban American artist Enrique Martínez Celaya takes up the drama of youth, wrought as it is with fear, wonder, trepidation and exuberance, in various proportions, and explores both the deterioration of memory and memory’s role in informing the present.

The Pearl is an immersive environment that sprawls across the entirety of SITE Santa Fe’s 12,000 square feet of gallery spaces. Utilizing painting, sculpture, sound, video, and light, the artist creates various installations threaded together by a continuous clear plastic tube of circulating water. The viewer follows the flow of the water from gallery to gallery in a manner suggestive of following a narrative. However, the individual installations are more akin to rhythmic pulses within a meandering melody, or emotional beats within a theatrical performance. They are better described as moments of encounter, sparsely arranged in the vast gallery space, replete with both climaxes and spaces of silence.
