Yanira Collado: Alchemic Chants/ Reliquías Fragmentadas

Emerson Dorsch, 5900 NW 2nd Avenue, Little Haiti

Emerson Dorsh is hosting Yaniro Collado’s solo exhibition “Alchemic Chants/ Reliquías Fragmentadas” for Miami Art Week.

A footprint of Collado‘s childhood home, the site of her mother’s work and Collado‘s education, nearly covers the gallery floor, while objects and paintings punctuate the slim corridor around it. Collado imbues her work with the stories of migration and subcultures, wrapping them in protective layers of cardboard, paint, and fabric. Her work builds from her story of errantry and her ability to stand still and think in many directions. She places relics from a root – from her own life, the neighborhood, or a community – inside a house for contemplation. Yet, if a reliquary is a house for a relic, she’s turned the system inside out, an action that gets at the paradoxical nature of memory and identity.
