Exhibition presents two artists: Indira Urrutia and Juan Carlos Mendizabal
Since 2016, Indira Urrutia started exploring the technique of metal weaving. Knitting and weaving have been part of Urrutia’s life since childhood. As such, Indira uses the process of hand knitting to reconnect with the female family members who have inspired her throughout her life. Just as she has done with photography in the past, Urrutia uses weaving to recollect the memories, tales, and history of her life.
