Julia Rivera

Julia Rivera examines the impact of architecture on the surrounding area. Rivera focuses on a study of form and attempts to find applications in the space around her. In the immediate vicinity of FLAC©, where the artist's temporary home is also situated, she conceives a street intervention. Rivera recorded this in a series of slides. Held in a surrealist plinth in the shape of a perfect hemisphere, she places herself and other figures in the street-scene, which she additionally marks by adding a structure of white lines which are conspicuously (or inconspicuously) different from ordinary traffic signs. Chaos and the interchangeability of the location evoke themes such as mobility and immobility, rootlessness and alienation.
