Ruthless Powers: New Work by Liz Born & Victoria Martinez

Ruthless Powers
New Work by Liz Born & Victoria Martinez

Opening Reception Friday, May 16th, from 6-10pm
May 16 - June 13, 2014

1755 S Laflin St.

Using plants, refuse, and roadkill, Born and Martinez attempt reanimation, asking: How does a body become a monument? Ruthless Powers presents moments of decay, both architectural and biological, and the subsequent preservation of abandoned places and post-mortem tissues. New works reflect evidence of formal decision-making that leads to a subconscious confrontation.

Drinks and refreshments will be served. We hope you can join us!

Liz Born is a printmaker, teaching artist and founder of Hoofprint Workshop, a Pilsen-based printmaking studio. Her woodcuts feature a handful of characters, archetypal and mammalian, performing acts of eating, birthing, and self-contemplation.

Victoria Martinez is an interdisciplinary artist and educator from Pilsen. She creates site-specific interventions in the urban environment that honor memories growing up in the community. Her work includes materials from local establishments and found objects to echo nostalgia.

"antena" is a project space located in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. The spanish word "antena" means a device that is a transducer designed to transmit or receive electromagnetic waves. In this case, it is meant to define a cultural space that symbolically transmits/broadcasts art ideas, new media & installation projects on a local and global scale.

On display through June 13th by appointment

antena is located just a block from the 18th pink line station, at the corner of Laflin and 18th St
