Laura Eldret's project The Juicers, a collaboration with a Zapotec community in Mexico, was exhibited as a work-in-progress in the first week of fig-2; now, in our final week, you can see the culmination of her project at the ICA Studio until Sunday 20 December.
Donate to fig-2's Art Happens project between now and Sunday, and you will be automatically entered into a free draw to win a signed, numbered, limited-edition sampler (see gallery, below) by Laura Eldret from her project The Juicers. Juice Sampler is a series of three samplers, #Y (yellow), #G (green) and #O (orange) – each is an edition of 175, 15 x 10cm, presented in a ribbon-tied paper folder. We have 25 to give away in total. Colours will be randomly allocated.
The Juicers is a new video work that follows the people of a Zapotec community in Mexico famous for its rug-making traditions. In the first week of ﬁg-2, Eldret displayed a number of rugs made by the people she met, their respective designs reﬂecting on her experience and functioning as receipts of exchange. Her two-channel video installation focuses on issues of communication, translation, and ways of being together. Read our interview with the artist to find out more.
