Carlos Martiel: Plegaria Muda
February 14 through March 15, 2014
6026 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90036
Carlos Martiel, a young artist who graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Havana in 2009, will stand in the middle of Steve Turner’s upstairs gallery on February 14 with strands of nylon sewn into his body and attached to the walls. Since there will be bells on the nylon strands and Martiel will probably be unable to keep entirely still, the performance should have a chime-like soundtrack. The nylon strands and a video of the performance will be left in the gallery for the duration of the show.
