Title: Her Rain: Lani Maestro
Publisher: Centre A and Plug In
Size: 8 ½ x 5 ½ inches / 22 x 14 cm
Description: Lani Maestro often uses minimal and simple visual language to address the complexities of human nature, dignity and conditions in our social, cultural and political realities as we experience them in everyday life. Her works are poetic, powerful and complex and defy conventional interpretation. In the space Maestro creates with “her rain” at Centre A, she poses an open-ended philosophical question: “how is subjectivity situated?”. “her rain” responds directly to the location of the gallery and its cultural significance, based on the artist’s preliminary visit there in 2008.
