CLIMAGRATION.jpg

CLIMAGRATION; a solo exhibit by Bea Lamar focusing on the environmental refugee phenomenon haunting nations.

Bea Lamar, a Lebanese-American artist, creates mixed media artworks, photos, and installation work.  By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, Lamar tries to approach the heavy subject in a multi-layered, global manner, involving the viewer interactively.

Her work appears as dreamlike images in which disastrous scenarios and reality meet, meanings shift, and the familiar and the feared merge. Space and Nature evidently play a key role in this exhibit. With a conceptual approach, her work relies extensively on scientific climate data, as well as documentation as a form of resistance against the climate-denying machine. 

Concentrating on repeatedly asking the same question over and over, she aims at amplifying the disbelief of the spectator by creating settings that sound a poetic alarm of sorts. The artist states;

"At its core, my work mirrors the scale and diversity at which the balance of nature is disrupted, and the far-reaching consequences of that disruption".

Lamar currently lives and works in Los Angeles.

The exhibit will be on view at Humans Of The Earth Gallery from September 22- October 20th during regular gallery hours, and by appointment at 626.642.8824

Bleicher Gallery La Brea presents a discussion and reception for “SoftMachine:UT”, curated by Mike Saijo. Artists will have a brief talk about their work in the exhibit and their take on how it relates to our current socio-political climate.

Saijo’s ambitious project is a series of painted hexagon shapes formed to look like DNA compounds. These shapes will be painted on by diverse members of the community, making a constantly evolving exhibition. Taking cue from the William Burroughs’ innovative cut-up/fold-in novel, the canvases create a gallery-wide DNA structure and together, tell a new kind of mythology about our social dynamics.

The exhibit is the first of a three-part series of exhibits curated and created by Mike Saijo. Inspired by William Burroughs’ 1964 sci-fi novel Soft Machine, this exhibit explores the novel’s concept of undifferentiated tissue (UT), a tissue which causes the protagonist to metamorphose and change identities throughout the course of its story. Much like the UT, today’s scientific practices continue to change our own DNA and, in turn, constantly restructure the DNA of our society as a whole.
