Nanette Yannuzzi Macias
Palomar College's Boehm Gallery presented installations by Marcia Olson and Nanette Yanuzzi Macias that skim the surface of deep, social phenomena relating to the way woman take control of their bodies and their lives.
Curator: Louise Kirtland Boehm
Venue: Boehm Gallery, Palomar College, San Marcos
Organizer: Boehm Gallery, Palomar Collage
Artists Nanette Yannuzzi Macias and Melissa Smedley collaborated on a two-part installation at El Sótano (an abandoned mop factory) in Tijuana and the San Diego Natural History Museum. Entitled Animal Vegetable Mineral: Comidas para los sombreros, the artists explained the installations as explorations of the rituals of communication. At El Sótano, the work consisted of a multitude of materials from a cotton loom, gourds, candles, and buckets, to a deerskin, birdcage, and eucalyptus tree stump, suggesting, according to the artists, a laboratory space that referenced the machine and ritual. The installation at the Natural History Museum acted as a response to this magical machine and incorporated video elements situating the materials in dialogues that suggested not yet considered relationships.
