A former member of the Cuban artist collaborative Los Carpinteros, Alexandre Arrechea has embarked on a solo career. Arrechea does not limit himself to one medium of artistic expression—he is a highly skilled draftsman, sculptor and installation artist.
The gallery will be transformed into Dust, an installation of five life-size hand-blown glass punching bags. Each bag contains a collection of debris from a specific city that has significance to the artist. In each of these cities where he lived and worked, Arrechea has given a part of himself and, in turn, has taken memories with him.
Magnan Projects will exhibit Alexandre Arrechea’s Surveillance Project at PULSE Miami, December 1-4, 2005
