My Place is the Placeless
Artist Lab Residency// 18th Street Art Center // April 24-July 20, 2017
In this 18th Street Art Center Artist Lab and exhibition My Place is the Placeless, Guirguis created an environment for investigations into the intersections of art and activism through explorations of materials made from the earth’s elements, including pigment, paper, soil and water. Guirguis seeks to address issues of displacement, environmental destruction, and cultural and historical memory loss in her work, as well as through conversations with local artists engaged in political activism, and workshops with local Santa Monica youth and adult participants. The adobe structure was created in collboartion with earthbuilders Nathan Wright and Wade Lucas.
