Sandra Vásquez de la Horra

  • The Drawingroom
    March 8, 2014 - May 4, 2014
    Galerie im Taxispalais
    Innsbruck, Austria

    The exhibition The Drawingroom presents fifteen international artists whose works focus primarily on the medium of drawing. The artists, born in different generations, emphatically underline the possibilities of content and form offered by contemporary drawing. The exhibition questions the medium of drawing with respect to its contemporary discourse. Abstraction and figuration, political statements, issues of the body and gender, introspection and the fantastic are shown to equal degrees.

    Bergen Academy of Art and Design
    Bergen, Norway

    This group exhibition curated by Brandon LaBelle features works by artists whose aim has been to stress erasures, suppressions or the impossibility of representation, through a play of phantasmic appearance. "Magic Block" seeks to explore these relations, specifically highlighting artists working in Chile over the last 35 years.

    fondation antoine de galbert
    Paris, France

    Curator Jean-Hubert Martin has delved into David Walsh’s private collection, as well as that of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), to show together apparently "heterogeneous" objects and question museal conventions. Théâtre du Monde strikes relations, whether corresponding or contrasting, between the form or meaning of these works of different origins.

  • A IMINÊNCIA DAS POETICAS
    September 7, 2012 - December 9, 2012
    Bienal de Sao Paulo, Brazil

    Sandra Vásquez de la Horra is showing her new body of works at the 30th Bienal de Sao Paulo in Brazil. Her works on paper invite the viewer into an imaginary world comprising intimate notes on her own personal history. Culled from other sources such as literature, philosophy and anthropology, her works flow and cascade organically and are typically arranged in large, ethereal combinations. Each work tells a particular story based
    on myths and popular tales, and contains notions of religion, politics, sex and folk culture. Mostly figurative in nature, her drawings depict fantastical creatures or hybrid figures in surreal and macabre scenarios, and evoke irony and a dark humor.
