This time, THE CLUB will hold a solo exhibition “Atlpan” by female artist born in Mexico, Claudia Penha Salinas.

Her works based in New York are also stored in the Whitney Museum of Art. For this exhibition, Penya Salinas will make a stay in Nagano for about a month, and will present works with motifs of Mexican nature and mythology and works inspired by Japan. This exhibition, the first solo exhibition in Asia, is composed of works that combine installations and videos, including media sculptures, and invites viewers to a poetic space.

-My production activities are guided by the act of research, travel and collection. Through the accumulation of personal stories and research on aesthetic and historical issues that stimulate my interests, my work is a kind of travel that condenses the past and present, and the culture and the sacred. It expands as described above. ―Claudia Pena Salinas

The title of the exhibition “Atlpan” is a combination of “atl”, which means water in Nahuatl *, and the prefix “pan”, which means being in or touching something. Introducing works that hang from the sky and divide the space, reminiscent of Japanese shoji, and video works based on themes that spin the myth of Mexico.

* Nahuatl: The language most widely spoken by so-called Indians in North America and Mexico.
