Sofía Gallisá Muriente: Celaje (Cloudscape)
December 6, 2023–May 19, 2024
Sofía Gallisá Muriente’s 41-minute video Celaje (Cloudscape) explores the confluence of recent natural disasters with Puerto Rico’s colonial histories and present. Combining home movies, footage and sound recordings of the artist’s late grandmother, and footage filmed in post-Hurricane Maria and COVID-19 era Puerto Rico, Muriente refers to the work as an elegy. She emphasizes the theme of impermanence by degrading some of the film stock, an analogy for the ravages of the tropical climate on the material evidence of history.
