Martín Bonadeo “Reflection”
Tyler Haynes Commons, University of Richmond, February 5 through 9, 2015
Argentinian artist Martín Bonadeo's site-specific art installation “Reflection,” consisted of blue electroluminescent wires attached to MDF pieces that were laser-cut to represent the shapes of rivers in South America, but presented upside-down. The three-story tall work was hung from the ceiling of the Commons and remained lit the entire run of the project, at night being reflected right-side-up in the Westhampton Lake.
“Reflection” was presented by the University of Richmond Museums with support from the following departments and campus units: Department of Art & Art History; Department of Latin American, Latino & Iberian Studies; American Studies Program; Office of International Education; University Facilities; University Events, Conferences, and Support Services; the Student Activities Office; and the Cultural Affairs Committee.
