Photo by andie flores

Presa House will open their 2021 calendar with the debut solo exhibition of San Antonio native and Austin-based artist andie flores. The title, "but always near poets," is taken from a small passage by Gaston Bachelard in The Poetics of Space.

flores is a visual and performance artist, writer, and comedian, and is currently a second-year doctoral student in the Mexican American Latinx Studies program at the University of Texas in Austin. Her work and play are steered by questions of audience, excess, glitches, legacy/archive, experiments of liveness, and performances of an online identity.

flores explores the ways surveillance (self-surveillance, ubiquitous surveillance from the state, and conditioned familial management of emotions and the body) disrupts social interactions and makes the anonymity of pedestrian life difficult. She uses humor to hint at new narratives of an excessive brown femme subject in sites where surveillance occurs. Her portraits (in any form) are often built around themes of isolation and loneliness that focus as much on the final image as the interactions in the space of the photograph’s on-site creation.

The exhibition will remain on view by appointment only through January 29.
