Welcome to Genesee
The work walks the fine line between eeriness and the mundane. The shots happen to be urban, metropolitan to be precise, but they seem rural, abandoned even vacant. The images convey visual creepiness that at times seems purely psychological, as if taken out of a nightmare or a Hollywood movie. Unintentionally they titillate towards a vacuum, as if time had stopped, a place where one doesn’t arrive or leave from, were one just is. By being there one can sense calm grow within, darkness giving way to beauty, one that grows out of nuances and subtlety, one which lets one wonder off, away from meaning and into the night.
Genesee has opened its doors.
Wednesday through Saturday 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM
Sunday through Tuesday by appointment.
The day before the beginning is also an end.
The day before the the end is also a beginning, a premature one.
Genesee is a place where art, design and fashion briefly converge in space and time. Located in a pistachio-colored 1920s neoclassical house, located in West Hollywood’s Spaulding Square, the setting is a contemporary investigation of the classical salon. Neither showroom, nor store, Genesee is a collective of artists, designers, architects, writers, and thinkers who seek to understand what it means to produce in these times.
The three Artigas siblings are equally involved: Alejandro the eldest is the architect who remodeled and landscaped the space. He will show his furniture line and direct the art and design agenda. Teresita, the middle one, will be in control not only of the day to day but of homeware and accessories. While Gabriela, the youngest will showcase her jewelry line while coordinating all things fashion.
