GRIN is pleased to announce ASYLUM, the debut exhibition of 2D and 3D works by Andrea Lynn Santos.

 

The word asylum can be ambivalent; for some it has negative or even frightening connotations. But an asylum is a refuge; it provides protection and shelter from harm.

 

This exhibition is a divulgence into recurring themes of my current work surrounding the idea of veiling vs. exposing the self. Santos’s aim is to portray a common thread between the asylums we create through our ritualistic habits such as collecting and hoarding memorabilia and in turn, a loss through accumulation. She is interested in the regeneration and impermanence of these sheltered spaces, in both physical and spiritual worlds.

 

The show contains visual timelines, historical references and material transformations to create a physical display of metamorphoses.
