“De/construct” , Magaly Ponce invites you

Deconstruct Group Exhibition Providence



The exhibition title “de/construct” refers both to the show's theme of art and architecture and to a particular way of looking. It also evokes the show's unusual setting: the 4000 sq. ft. loft at 150 Chestnut St. is slated for interior demolition following the show, so that the artists were free to literally deconstruct and reconstruct their environment.


The work ranges from photographs and paintings to sculpture and installation, all presented in interesting and unusual relationships to the specific site.


All eight artists live and work in the Providence area:


Erin Eberle, Avi Forman,Graham Heffernan, Jon Laustsen, Olga Mesa, Allison Paschke, Lisa Perez, Magaly Ponce, and Antonio Rocha.


The show was curated by Allison Paschke in conjunction with the other artists.

Magaly Ponce is a video and installation artist from Chile. Ponce's inspiration comes
from a variety of sources ranging from repression, anxiety, anger, love, admiration and
contemplation. She uses metaphoric language to convey the complexity of the subject
matter, something explicitness cannot convey. Her work gravitates from the poetic to the
political while maintaining a love for audio and crafted imagery. Ponce studied Graphic
Design at Universidad de Valparaíso, Valparaíso, Chile. She received a Creative Video
Grant in Latin America from the Rockefeller, Mac Arthur and Lampadia Foundations.
Ponce also received a Creative Video Grant awarded by Fundación Andes, in Chile. She
graduated with an M.F.A. degree thanks to a two-year Fulbright grant and a Syracuse
University fellowship.
Ponce currently teaches New Media at Bridgewater State College
in Massachusetts.

Her work has been exhibited widely in her home country, Denmark, Korea and in the US. Ponce's website is at www.resextensa.net
