BOYNTON BEACH, FL---(Un)Common: Traces, at ActivistArtistA Gallery, is a visual journal of a journey to “Ecuador and Back” by four, Miami based artists, where they document how common and uncommon a place can be, not only in the superficial level, but also in the very intimate moments they shared while dwelling in Ecuador, having to confront to undiscovered places, uncontrolled emotions, and unseeing reactions, with a very comforting common taste, language, food, and mannerism.
The four Miami based artists Nathalie Alfonso, Sofia Bastidas, Andres Ramirez and Edison Peñafiel, explored Ecuador’s, social and ecological diversity. Now in their return they will be presenting the work they developed while they were traveling for a period of one month from the coast to Ecuador to the highlands.
Dwelling Projects partner with an established art residency in Ecuador “La Factoria” here the four artists collaborated together to help installation artist Nathalie Alfonso create a piece based on the materials of the area. This journey made the group of artists become more aware of the many ways to collaborate, learn from each other and meet local artisans and artists.
