Elena Bajo

At 18th Street Arts Center, Elena Bajo develops site-specific work confronting ideas of space under conditions of chance and contingency.

Elena Bajo’s practice produces spaces realizing the social and political potential of architectural space and landscape. Bajo rejects the normalized dialectic of space and instead reestablishes its discourse according to the conditions of chance and contingency.

During her residency, Bajo’s uses the Californian natural landscape and its political histories via research on ecosophical moments of fracture and repositioning which entertain fissures in a world of crystallized sensibility as her point of departure.  Bajo’s works are conceptually linked to cognitive labor which cannot be valued nor commodified. 

Opening reception on February 1, 2014, from 6 pm to 9 pm.
