In Dust We Trust: Parkeology Exhibition Opening Reception And Solo Exhibitions By Robert Andrade, Vabianna Santos, & Daniel Barron Corrales says

HELMED BY ARTIST KATE CLARK IN DUST WE TRUST CHRONICLES PARKEOLOGY IN AN EXPANDED EXHIBITION OF BALBOA PARK ODDITIES, EPHEMERA, AND RELICS. PART PARKEOLOGY RETROSPECTIVE AND PART ARCHAEOLOGY OF LONG-FORGOTTEN PARK TREASURES, THIS EXHIBITION FEATURES ABANDONED MUSEUM ARTIFACTS AND NEWLY MINTED MEDIA DOCUMENTING THE FIRST-EVER BALBOA PARK-WIDE ART AND CURATORIAL PROJECT.

Robert Andrade creates work in various media including sculpture, video, photography, graphic design and sound. His work investigates issues related to urbanism, architecture and spatial production by deconstructing the concept of the built environment, placing architectural tropes and fragments in critical dialogue with historical icons and contemporary culture. Andrade interrogates the supermall, the plaza connected to a skyscraper, and the city as sites of stratified violence on bodies and psyches via capitalist modes of production and self-perpetuation. His work constitutes an archive of the methods by which he critiques, observes, and mines the ambiguity of living within inherited constructs we may wish to dismantle but can’t opt out of.


Daniel Barron Corrales is creating a new, temporary installation for SDAI’s staircase. This sculpture is constructed of several inflatable sections that are densely embellished with textiles and other materials. The parts range from 4 feet to 10 feet tall and are threaded onto a 21 foot steel reinforced PVC tube. This tube is then pressurized with a blower to allow each section of the work to be inflated. This work will be suspended 13 feet above the gallery floor and attached to a motor that allows the viewer to control its rotation.


“Songs in Flesh” is a solo exhibition by visual artist Vabianna Santos. Santos’ work indulges in willful contradiction and reimagines social interactions in conjunction with natural phenomena. The show includes a new series of 100-word narratives paired with fields of color that blend the private, the actual and the impossible. Sexuality is explored with crassly updated metaphysical themes to disrupt impersonal performances of power and examine what creates hindrances to empathy. These are stories about losers on their way to finding bliss. With both text and image, Santos creates worlds where inner experience is mirrored in shifting outer appearances and landscapes- worlds populated by girl gangs, sudden transformations, interwoven genders and encounters pushed out to the unthinkable. The tone of the work is simultaneously ritualistic and critical; celebratory and imbued with lament; incendiary and affectionate.
