FLOATING MEMORIES exhibition – Feather Fine Art

by The Feather Place NYC on August 29, 2018

in FEATHER TRENDS,FINE ART

Jorge Mayet is one of the most prominent Cuban contemporary artists.

All of his works carry a tremendous amount of life values and experiences. His installations were on display this summer at Hotel Indigo in NYC, in “Floating Memories”, the artist explores an anthology of remnants and collective memories.

Sueño al amparo de la noche

As we explore deeper into this exhibition, our minds are taken into the fleeting moments belonging to the artist’s life and the Cuban diaspora. Mayet introduces us to the tangible idea of the separation of families as he transports us into pure metaphors about liberation and exile.

In one of his pieces (Obatala, 2016) exhibited at the Indigo Hotel, he utilizes certain distinctive nature elements such as duck, chicken and goose feathers as he relates to us a delicate message about freedom and exploration.

To learn more about Jorge Mayet and his works please visit his website (https://jorgemayet.com/portfolio/).

Be Wild, Be Free ! But Remember to be smart when it comes to your feathered frocks, and make sure to keep them well maintained!  Here’s what the Burning Man Official Blog says regarding feathers at the Playa and MOOP :

“…if you want to wear feathers, that’s fine … but make sure they’re attached in ways that won’t fail, and if you can’t then don’t wear them, because it’s on YOU if they become MOOP. (And that goes for anything you bring to Black Rock City.)”

Burning Man is from August 26th to September 1st 2018

Burn responsibly 🔥 See you at the Playa
