Under Contruction Gallery
Every year, at the same time, there is a strange phenomenon that occurs between North America and Mexico. By the millions, monarch butterflies – in the color orange, streaked with black – fly 4,000 kms to a region of Mexico, in a precise place that never changes. Fascinated by this phenomenon and driven by the desire to confront her practice with this mystery of nature through a sensitive experience, Rachel Marks left for Mexico to immerse herself in the heart of this migration. For her first solo exhibition under construction gallery, she presents a set of pieces related to this project and reinvents a pathway of different stages of this journey, which is an intense journey in the physical space as well as an inner journey.
