Muralla Alta / High Wall, 2017
Silver gelatin print photograms were produced from cut outs of Edra Soto's photographic collection of "Rejas" designs taken in Puerto Rico, collaged with dry clay casted sea shells.
Muralla Alta / High Wall is a collaboration in between Edra Soto and Daniel Hojnacki that concentrates on architecture that is both personal and prescriptive. Situating the art within the constructed space of the home aligns its form and content with a different architectural framework, highlighting its relationship to the supportive structures of the house. This correlation allows viewers to consider how agency of people and architecture shifts within particular spaces, and how different structures shape not only the movement and interaction of physical bodies, but also critical thought, cultural perspectives, and feelings of belonging.
