3 Shows at Hardcore Art Contemporary

From July 8th through August 5th, 2006Hardcore Art Contemporary Space (HACS) opens three solo shows presenting emerging artists Julian Navarro, Milcho (Veronica Milchorena) and Ana I. Martinez. In the show Mojo-Hand, Julian Navarro proposes a vision of the sacred and the profane. Mojo-Hand exposes us to a syncretic icon native of Colombia. The Mojo is a shielding amulet that the sages give to their protected. As an amulet, The Mojo conveys popular beliefs of the Latin American culture which break intellectual and science-based taboos of ethnocentric ideological systems. Milcho’s Tend Days video installation proposes an introspective and personal vision of her own life. The work constitutes the expression of a private mythology. In the video we are presented with the last ten days of the artist’s grandmother’s life transformed, not only in a testimony to loss and nostalgia but also into an artistic vision of death and mortality. Ana I Martinez’s show focuses in the use of new mediums in photography. Through the use of LEDs, with a dynamically chromatic palette, the artist creates an optical illusion of movement. The pieces seems to move constantly through out the deconstruction of the figures by the LED’s. The spectator is faced to a spectacle of forms and to delirious technical effects. The opening reception for these exhibitions will take place at Hardcore Contemporary Art Space located at 3326 North Miami Ave. Miami, FL. on July 8th, 2006 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. For more information, please call: 305.576.1645
