Coquest | Control | Confinement: de la Torres brothers and Belize Iristay

This wonderful gallery is hitting its stride with a fabulous installation/exhibition by Einar and Jamex de la Torres and Belize Iristay. The ship is upping anchor in August but this show is not to be missed and the  S.O.S. Benefit Auction, Saturday June 27th from 6:00pm - 11:00pm is a call for help to keep the boat afloat.   Do yourself a favor and see this show and the home in Del Mar before this era is over. 

Belize Iristay was covered in black from head to foot when we arrived with just a slit for the eyes. This was part of the documentation as several of us adorned ourselves similarly. Adorned might not be the right word, as you immediately lost all sense of identity. You became a walking anonymous thing instead of a person. My friends did not recognize me until I talked to them and even the look in their eyes was alien as if I was an intruder.

Beliz Iristay shows a continuation of the video installation at Valencia Gallery for the New Contemporaries exhibition with these ceramic lip inspired works.

This and the images below are by the de la Torres brothers. There were individual works and every where you looked as well as installations in alcoves and in one whole room.


The largest installation was an entire room, floor, ceiling and walls completely covered with images.

 This is work you need to see in don't even begin to touch the effect. So don't hesitate. Go soon or you will miss this extravagance of art.
