We are pleased to announce an exhibition A Sense of Place by Ruth Celeste Estigarribia on April 21 (Sat) & 22 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Ruth Celeste Estigarribia lives and works in Asuncion,born in 27 December 1980, studied at “Instituto Superior de Arte, from Asunción National University.
Her work explores controversial elements in an urban Paraguayan context, researching subterfuges in our present, context and history. She is an artifice of actions and provocative reactions. Inspector of social Issues. Her urban intervention and installations are a subtle and conceptual approach that brings art into people´s lives, help and stimulate the critical points of different views, always using the group interaction and community participation by reclaiming of the city.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
An observation of local textures.
The found objects, shapes and textures of the environment I am in are central to my work. A series of metal grills and drain covers provide plates for direct embossing on handmade paper. Photographs of worn and faded surfaces or lines in the sand are converted to plates for hand printing. Ceramic shards found on the beach become the source for a Kintsugi sculpture. My work is an appreciation of Japanese places and aesthetics.
