Brenda Morales and Adrianna Alejo Sorondo at The Ramp Gallery

Thursday, January 16–Tuesday, February 25, 2020
SOMArts, 934 Brannan St.

Too Much Pero Not Enough

In their newest body of work Brenda Morales and Adrianna Alejo Sorondo are decoloninzing what is considered “fine art”. They approach mediums in a way that acknowledges their ephemerality to convey their ideologies. By using a multimedia perspective to contrast the physicality of stolen indigenous sculptures, they attempt to convey similar emotions and concepts without them being able to be physically taken from space. Morales and Sorondo also focus on the dichotomy of the physical and emotional by having the body presented as vessel and hands in constant action.
