cb-magic-01Another fantastic opening night at Giant Robot 2 for the Magic Bodies (September 28th – October 16th), a solo exhibit by the funny and talented artist Ako Castuera.

Giant Robot is proud to present Magic Bodies, an exhibition featuring new work by Ako Castuera. Enough time has elapsed since Ako Castuera’s previous solo exhibition at GR2 and her participation at the Giant Robot Biennale 3. Castuera’s new body of work is comprised of challenges to her various influences, including her contemporary view on Pre-Columbian style ceramics. ”This show is about giving shape to the imagination,” says Castuera. “I picture it as an invisible ocean that is around us and inside of us while we go about our daily  routines, aware and unaware of it. This is what it looks like when it comes through me.” Castuera’s previous exhibitions included ceramic sculptures, 2d art and a melding of ideas into a well designed exhibition atmosphere. “I’m thinking of my sculptures as projections of big stories onto a small stage, ancient characters who are going through a costume change.”
