Luba Zygarewicz: e c h o e s
Opening: Saturday Oct 14, 6 - 9 pm

Exhibition Dates: Oct 14 to Nov 5

Good Children Gallery is excited to present e c h o e s, a collection of works by Luba Zygarewicz that seek to capture fleeting moments and explore themes of belonging, fragility, resilience, and hope, all within the context of a non-stop, fast-moving world and the omnipresent effects of climate change.

e c h o e s

is a journey of

a thousand walks

a thousand thoughts

a thousand strokes

and a thousand hopes

It is in a moment that fire consumes, a mark is made, a word is spoken, a life is altered. As echoes resemble something that has been, anchored in repetition, the works beckon viewers to slow down, notice, and reflect on what has been and where we are going to create a more sustainable future.

Visitors will encounter RISORGERE, a large installation that was originally created in Sonoma County, California with remnants from the North Bay Fires the artist excavated/collected at a “Fire Debris Site”. It was featured in RE-COLLECT in conjunction with the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art and was later commissioned to be part of City of Santa Rosa Public Art Program for two years. The artist has reconstructed the piece for its Louisiana debut. Also featured are more private “meditation or process drawings” that bridge and often inform and inspire larger works.

Zygarewicz's works highlight the everyday and excavate traces of human interaction embodied in objects and spaces. Discards, repetition, and rituals become the byproducts of projects that as cumulative pieces echo reverence for the handmade and through materiality investigate our relationship to the environment and the footprint or “huellas” we leave behind. Her work comments on the transience of time and landscape and elevates the seemingly banal to spark reflection and wonder.
