Steve Turner is pleased to present Criollo Fittings, a solo exhibition by Buenos Aires-based Eugenia Mendoza that will present woven wicker sculptures of mass-produced pipe fittings and other elements from building construction. She uses the materials and methods once common to the Paraná River delta area near Buenos Aires to depict ordinary construction elements that are common in Argentina’s ever-expanding capital city.
Eugenia Mendoza earned a BA in Sociology at the University of Buenos Aires (2004) and a BA in Visual Arts at the National University of Art (2014). She has had solo exhibitions at Galeria Alsina, Buenos Aires (2014) and at El Arbol Cultural Center, Buenos Aires (2010). This is her first exhibition at Steve Turner, Los Angeles and her first outside of Argentina.
