Installation view, Quiero Saborear Mi Dolor, 2021

The Soraya Art Gallery is proud to present “Quiero Saborear Mi Dolor,” an exhibition by Los Angeles based artist Andrés Janacua.

It is a language, considerate of esoteric rules that subject the reader to conform to its logic regardless of any native tongue. Weaving functions as a form of resignation, settling on acts of translating patterns into communicative parameters between being read and being seen. No less, resisting a fixed definition. This form of translating shares its philosophical outlook with the act of transculturation, a manner of recycling in which a subjected party assimilates signs and objects of another as their own resulting in a syncretic byproduct. With this redefinition, a new subsequent meaning is generated which may place the object at odds with the inherent traditional custom to bear; an intersection that filters similarities with just enough dissonance to infer the Platonic vision of hell: a pale simulation with too much generational degradation to ever be whole again.
