The first UK solo exhibition and major new commission by Chilean artist Patricia Domínguez, will transform the gallery into a ritual space.

Dates and Times: Thursday 4 July - Sunday 8 September, 12:00 - 18:00. Preview: Wednesday 3 July, 18:30 - 20:30.

For the exhibition, Patricia Domínguez will be bringing together her ongoing research on ethnobotany, shamanistic practices and the corporatisation of wellbeing.

Her most recent installations takes the form of cybernetic fetishes, totems, masks and magical objects designed to exorcise the effects of late capitalism in the physical and social body, while playfully exploring the emancipatory potential of artistic imagination as a form of psychic guerrilla warfare. Built around a pyramid-shaped altar, the exhibition will comprise sculptures, video and a publication tracing the colonial circulations of seeds and data in a hyperconnected society.

Patricia Domínguez is an artist based in Santiago de Chile. Recent exhibitions include: SeMA Seoul Museum of Art, Korea; ARCO Madrid; Twin Gallery, Madrid; (all 2018); Sala CCU, Santiago; Museo MAC, Santiago; CCU Gallery, Santiago (all 2017); CA2M, Madrid; Pizzuti Collection, Ohio; Galería Patricia Ready, Santiago (all 2016); El Museo del Barrio, New York; FLORA, Bogotá (2013); The Watermill Center, New York (2010). She is also the founder of Studio Vegetalista, an experimental platform for ethnobotanical research based in Santiago.

Patricia Domínguez’s exhibition is commissioned and produced by Gasworks, following on from her residency in late 2017.
