Opening Reception: LEO GARCIA – My Alien Abduction: Prints & Assemblage
February 4, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
In My Alien Abduction, Garcia creates enigmatic symbology to mythologize the acts of abduction and appropriation. It’s madness, really … and it’s served with wine, cheese, a raffle and short works by aspiring writers/performers.
My Alien Abduction is Garcia’s pursuit to recover that which was taken from him … from a culture and a people. He does this through the manipulation of a digital program that in and of itself is a device of appropriation.
The result is a series of images that serves the myth of power by taking back his own. This is an act of re-appropriation that deals with abduction of land, self and alien abduction.
