MABEL POBLET, an award-winning artist from Cuba who is currently representing her native country at the 2017 Venice Biennale, opens an exhibition of site-based works at CYNTHIA-REEVES in Walpole, NH on September 16th through October 21st.
In her personal journey over a decade of creative work, Cuban artist Mabel Poblet has focused on the importance of representing the sea in her creations. Patria and Madeja, two recent works, feature the oceans as metaphors for transit, utopian journey, illusion, longing, and memory – underscoring the sea as both the boundary of her native island, and its liberation.
Mabel developed this series of work for a previous exhibition at CYNTHIA-REEVES at the MASS MoCA gallery, where she investigated the concept of buoyancy, an idea that continues this on-going inquiry around the oceans – one that further explores the insularity that characterizes artistic and social endeavors in Cuba.
Mabel Poblet has shown her work in the United States through CYNTHIA-REEVES, and at the Art of the Americas Museum at the Smithsonian; the Ludwig Forum Aachen in Germany; at venues in London, Paris, Madrid and elsewhere in Europe, in Cuba and in South America.
