From Sala Diaz:
“Sala Diaz is thrilled to announce My body is a temple, my body is a ruin, a solo exhibition featuring Jacqueline Saragoza McGilvray. The exhibition will open with a public reception on Friday, September 1, 2023, from 6–9pm at Sala Diaz. This event is free and open to the public.
My body is a temple, my body is a ruin explores themes of transformation, loss, love, devotion, support, and grief. It considers out of body experiences and finding paths to be present again in the body following destabilizing or life changing events.
The temple represents sacred space.
Architecture for engaging the spiritual, worshipful practice, catharsis, care, and community. The need for fellowship and support for others to be something extraordinary and healthy. In contrast the ruin represents isolation, disintegration, and collapse–something forgotten or abandoned. It is both a place (noun) and a verb–a choice or action made towards something. Flora motifs occur in the work for their metaphoric representations and as reflection on the practice of surrounding oneself in nature– and in interior spaces, with representations of nature. These natural elements represent growth, transformation, restoration, and being re-rooted in place and time.”
Reception: September 1, 2023 | 6–9 pm
