Las Cienegas Projects is pleased to present Have You Seen Me, a collaborative, installation-based project and group of performances conceived of by Tanya Haden and co-curated by Tanya Haden and Anna Oxygen.
Artists were asked to contribute work to be included within an illustrated 3-dimensional forest created by Haden and populated by mythical and familiar female storybook characters in various stages of disarray and displacement. The forest is interwoven with images and sculptural representations of domesticity. The show addresses the convergence of everyday, mundane domestic life with landscapes of fantasy, surrealism and notions of escapism, and poses questions around the meaning of being “lost”, the ways we experience being “seen”, and the stories we create to weave these sensations together.
The opening reception will include live puppet performances, music, and performance art exploring themes of the show. Contributing artists include Flora Golden, Tanya Haden, Johanna Jackson, Caitlin Lainoff, Anna Oxygen, Tracey Polyflavor, Alexandra Rushfield, Allison Schulnik, Katie Shook, Marnie Weber, Johanna Went, and Megan Whitmarsh. The performances will leave behind remnants that will become part of the gallery space for the duration of the exhibition.
