The Truth is around the corner. Waiting for your arrival, it speculates if you will be able to communicate. Don’t expect it to be unilateral; it is an invitation to take a detour, to explore it as a mystery. If you can’t communicate it’s fine, maybe that’s better. The important thing to keep in mind is that it will require at least two for its manifestation; a witness is always needed.

Queens Nails Projects is pleased to present The Truth is, Carolina Silva’s first solo exhibition in San Francisco. In this exhibition, Silva presents a series of drawings, video pieces and installation work. All together the work brings up the equation of “the Truth” as a relation of binaries and doubles. Silva’s work oscillates between presence and absence, light and darkness, both literally and allegorically. There is no direct hierarchy, what is seen is as important as what is hidden, and both are treated as an imaginary exercise.

Carolina Silva was born in Spain. Currently she lives and works in Seattle, WA. She completed an MFA in New Genres from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2005 and participated in the Artist Research Program at the Center for Contemporary Art, Kitakyushu, Japan. She has exhibited her work at Lawrimore Project in Seattle, at Galería Travesía Cuatro and la Casa Encendida, both in Madrid, at La Conservera, Murcia, Spain, among many others. This summer she will present her project Air Below Ground at the Sculpture Park in the Seattle Art Museum.
