Other Side Breathing will present a body of work inspired by various sites around Pilsen. They include alleyways, the abandoned mini mall on Cermak, the late La Unica taco shack, a flower shop and convenient stores. Upon the completion of exhibit, installations will be planted at designated sites and left to rest, live or disappear.

"My artwork explores the ephemeral, I am drawn to memories and events I cannot completely comprehend. Through soft sculpture installation and collage I assemble nostalgic, festive and curious work utilizing materials that are given to me, found or purchased at local stores, depending on my location. The key factor that activates my work are the sensations received from the past be it death, passion, innocence or mystery."
Victoria Martinez is an interdisciplinary artist from Pilsen who received her BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She is also a teaching artist who will be collaborating with youth from Yollocalli Arts Reach to create a soft sculpture installation to be exhibited at The Center for Advanced Hindsight at Duke University this summer.
