Alex Lopez
"Perhaps a Brief Anticipation of Nature: A day without me, Bulletproof"

December 3, 2004 - January 7, 2005

On First Friday, Alex Lopez exhibit his second installment based on the series, "Perhaps a Brief Anticipation of Nature", entitled, "A Day Without me, Bulletproof".

The long anticipated installation articulates confabulation in which the artist merges his own history with the influence of contemporary media. Lopezís newest series "Childhood     switch     Kid      next      door" focuses on the choices that one makes to remember the past.

On the other side of the world through the midnight desert, one can see and hear ice cream trucks playing childhood songs and lighting the way for a young refugee as she makes her way to a food drop. All of this transpires while the rest of the world looks on from its safe mountainous grandstand. Several moments of time are captured and recontextualized to make our surreal images of war and crimes seem more hopeful and palatable.
