Casa Ciudad de Mexico and Galleria Angel present the fundraiser exhibit for the Chicago Premier of SQUARE ROOT a mixed media art exhibit and runway performance show featuring artist Summer Romero’s textile and fashion design, Angelica Robles’s photography, and Fabian Gremion’s photography.
SQUARE ROOT is a collaborative project that began in NYC in early 2012. SQUARE ROOT uses photographs and textile designs to explore identity, human connection, isolation, and miscommunication caused by the technological advances. At the same time SQUARE ROOT is a reflexion of social masks, and how the vision is obstructed at both a physical and energetic level.
Project SQUARE ROOT is a reflective exercise about the square and how the human being has used it in a invasive and destructive matter to build cities, t.v.’s, harvest fields, computers, phones, doors, houses etc.
The human interaction and communication has been interrupted by technology and is experiencing less and less direct interaction. The square is also a symbol of unity of co- creation and collectiveness, the four cardinal points used in the Native American communities as well as the Mexica community, the Anhnk used in Egypt and the list goes on.
