Los vestigios de La Turista

Artist: Sol Calero

A long and unknown time ago, a canteen called “La Turista” served sunny-side ups on glossy glazed plates with walls covered in colorful mosaic tiles. Once peacefully residing on the Nordic west coast in a place called Bergen, now, we find its stolen remains in The Hague, during an excavation in Sol Calero’s solo exhibition at 1646.

Through painting, drawing, and working with found objects and fabrics, Sol explores the ambiguous and transformative nature of cultural signs and stories. From Salsa dancing lessons to hairdressing salons, cybercafés and archeological excavations: the artist’s immersive installations enable us to delve in with her. How do we (re)write the history of places that have ceased to exist? And what is the importance of the way we retell these stories? Digging grounds, we explore phenomena like exoticisation, commodification, and the gaze, while the once-upon-a-time canteen slowly resurrects by the mountains and the fjords.

Join us for the opening on Friday, June 3rd from 19:00.
