Collaboration with Dasha Shleyeva
Dasha Shleyeva and Gabe Flores are responding to the industrial workspace of the initial project between Shawn Patrick Higgins and Jason King and the intimacy of Higgins’ and Shleyeva’s Heart Hive. Together, Shleyeva and Flores created a semi-industrial architectural space based on interviews they conducted on each other. Each tempered glass panel, reminiscent of a microscopic slide, reveals a different level of the human process in regards to their art process. The surrounding painted shadows are reflective of the temporal time-based nature of understanding and nods to the impossibility of ever isolating the variable enough to speak in a truly knowing voice, even if it’s one’s own.
Dasha Shleyeva created the glass panel paintings.
Gabe Flores created the installation for the panels to be represented.
