“ Bajo el volcan ” Guerrero Project
Solo exhibition, Houston, Texas, USA, June - July 2017
To illustrate the narrative, Gwladys Alonzo projects the viewer to the heart of a drunkenness in Mexico. The structure of the exhibition unites recollections of the past like long immersions in the Mexican countryside, the work reminiscent of her voyages by train from Monterrey to Los Mochis, to those months spent in Oaxaca on the Pacific coast together and then with nights spent meandering through the streets of Mexico City. She alternates between points of views, cyclical references, parallel narratives, the juxtaposition and confusion between real actions and imagined ones. All of this together creates, in the spectator, a largely contemplative state, even slightly squiffy.
