Teresita Fernández: As Above So Below

On view beginning May 24, 2014

Demonstrating the artist’s remarkable ability to transform materials and their surrounding architecture into an enveloping perceptual experience, Teresita Fernández: As Above So Below combines graphite and gold to create a series of immersive, interconnected installations whose scale shifts from intimate to vast, from miniature to panoramic. Fernández’s largest solo exhibition to date, As Above So Below is made up entirely of new works.

Describing a universe in balance, the phrase “as above, so below” originates from the ancient Hermetic tradition central to alchemy, in which every action occurring on one level of reality (physical, emotional, or mental) correlates to every other. Responding to MASS MoCA’s massive and light-filled first-floor galleries, Fernández’s trio of new landscape-informed, large-scale installations embodies this expression, and is united through the show’s elaborately detailed exploration of two essential minerals.

In MASS MoCA’s triple-height gallery, occupying more than half of the 128’ x 29’ space, an installation titled Black Sun, 2014, evokes an amplified, glowing, cloud cover when viewed from underneath. When observed from overlooking mezzanine balconies, the same elements become vast topographical landscapes. Slowly gradating in color from amber to solid black, and composed of thousands of translucent tubes suspended from the ceiling, Black Suncreates a series of overlapping atmospheric planes; the entire work changes in an instant with the shifting natural light, and at times appears a slowly moving cinematic dissolve.
