Sofía Salazar Rosales: Hay cuerpos cansados por el viaje que buscan enraizarse (There are bodies tired from the journey seeking to root)

Bungalow

29. April – 3. September 2022

Bungalow is pleased to announce Sofía Salazar Rosales’s solo exhibition Hay cuerpos cansados por el viaje que buscan enraizarse (There are bodies tired from the journey seeking to root), which opens during the 2022 edition of Gallery Weekend Berlin.

Sofía Salazar Rosales (b. Ecuador, 1999) is an artist who stitches together her ancestral heritage to produce evocative sculptural works. Referencing the displacement of people and goods, her objects hold social and economic connotations of the trans-Atlantic trade routes. Products of containment inhabit the gallery to express the compassionless systems of colonialism and late capitalism. Delicately woven with the environmental exploitation of the region she comes from, one of Salazar Rosales’s objects hangs from the ceiling in a beaded produce bag filled with concrete bananas. An object awaiting transportation, the work is left to continually resist the weight it has been given. This analogy is witnessed in the cultural artifacts recreated in the gallery, transforming the space into a place to gather memories and lived experiences. By using various methods of preservation, fossilization and reproduction, Salazar Rosales imbues in her work an overwhelming sense of empathy that navigates the visitor through the space.
