"MATRIX: Teresita Fernandez"
1999-12-05 until 2000-01-30
Berkeley Art Museum
Berkeley, CA, USA United States of America

The architectural installations of Teresita Fernandez often are intended to confuse the senses, and work toward a redefinition of the relationship between the viewers body and environment. She begins her installations with a referential image, such as an empty swimming pool, to evoke a sensation of the familiar.

She uses light, color, and sometimes sound to illusionistically reconfigure a space as well as to confound its perception. Informed by feminist theories on the gender encoding of landscape and architecture, Fernandezs monumental installations make possible a reconditioning of assumed knowledge regarding the placement of the human body in space. Her works are not necessarily site-specific, but rather site-sensitive.

MATRIX exhibitions will be conceptualized and presented in series of three. The first grouping centers on art in which experience is brought back into life, through aesthetic perspective, romantic emotion, or the bodys presence in architecture.
