Raquel Paiewonsky: im propia at Yellow Peril

“im propia,” a solo exhibition of video, performance, photography and installation work by Dominican Republic based artist Raquel Paiewonsky, curated by Robert P. Stack.

Providence, RI, May 11, 2013 --( Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to present “im propia,” a solo exhibition of video, performance, photography and installation work by Dominican Republic based artist Raquel Paiewonsky, curated by Robert P. Stack.

“im propia” speaks of humanity and freedom, through a corporeal symbolism that embodies our experience in the social context but always with an important reference to our natural and instinctive self. Paiewonsky uses the body as a platform that allows her from an intimate place to approach broader topics ranging from social, philosophical or political. In this exhibition she explore personal relationships, childhood, love, stereotypes, nature, diversity.

“I have always been interested in the body as a vessel capable of containing our life experiences within itself, sometimes in mysterious and subtle ways, other times more forcefully,” explains Paiewonsky. “In recent years, my work explores the relationship between our essence and our surroundings, the impact of stereotypes and cultural constructions, always taking as a reference our instinctual selves and the ways in which the primal component of our nature is affected by the new and ever changing contexts of contemporary life.”

Although seldom conveying violence explicitly, Paiewonsky’s work is very much concerned with the veiled but insidious violence that permeates the personal, social and political systems in which we live.

The opening reception for “im propia” is on Thursday, June 20 from 5PM – 9PM during Gallery Night Providence. The exhibition will be on display until Sunday, July 14, 2013.
