SITE Santa Fe is pleased to present a new project by Enrique Martínez Celaya (b. 1964), entitled The Pearl. For this exhibition, Martínez Celaya transforms all 15,000 square feet of SITE’s gallery spaces into an immersive installation environment that includes several large and small-scale paintings, sculptures, video, waterworks and olfactory interventions. This exhibition integrates many of the elements and ideas that the artist has engaged with over the last several years. For this project, the artist takes the notion of home as both a point of departure and a destination to craft a multi-sensory experience that is an extended metaphor for a journey of emotional and psychological reflection. Visitors will experience the installation in a particular sequence that allows the multi-level narrative to unfold. This installation will be accompanied by an exhibition of preparatory drawings. The artist is also collaborating with Santa Fe-based Radius Books to produce an artist book related to the exhibition.
