Alexandre Arrechea: Landscape and Hierarchies
New works by Alexandre Arrechea curated by Elsa Mora
ArtYard is thrilled to present Landscape and Hierarchies, a solo exhibition featuring new works by Alexandre Arrechea. Arrechea has earned acclaim as an artist whose work continues to move, surprise, and deliver the type of optimism that sometimes only art can provide. This exhibition marks 20 years of the artist’s solo career.
Landscape and Hierarchies explores the responsibility that lies between the individual and the collective and the ripple effects human actions have on society and nature. Curated by Elsa Mora, the exhibition was produced specifically for ArtYard and includes monumental watercolors, sculptures, and multimedia installations.
For Landscape and Hierarchies, Arrechea draws inspiration from sports for his continued investigation into the power dynamics and structures of our everyday lives. Arrechea presents objects commonplace to baseball stadiums and playgrounds juxtaposed in surprising ways with natural elements such as glass trees, river water, and morning dew. His work transforms ephemeral moments like swinging and sketching into monumental acts, amplifying the importance of small actions. In addition, the artist offers multiple viewpoints into his creative process, blurring the distinction between what is personal and public while exploring the nature of truth.
