“Micaela de Vivero’s exhibit highlights the artist’s experiments with a wide assortment of non-traditional media. As you enter the room, you are surrounded by transformed objects that evoke an innovative laboratory. The artist’s unconventional and repurposed materials speak to dreamlike encounters, while also exploring experiences of daily life. She is most interested in the relationship between observer and installation — how the viewer becomes a part of the work by navigating through the space.”
