Transforming the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery into an active laboratory, membrane tensions features a constellation of new, site-specific works composed of cellulose. The cellulose (produced and harvested on-site at the Gallery) is used as both an intervention in the Gallery’s balcony windows and an installation of sculptural objects and light projections, alluding to the beginning of life where the delineation between internal and external was essential for life forms to first emerge. In using and placing cellulose (literally and figuratively) as the medial, membrane tensions anticipates future exchanges through reimagining the basic building blocks of primordial relationships.

Maru Garcia [b. Puebla, Mexico (she/her)] has participated in conferences, solo and group exhibitions in North America, Europe, and Asia. She was an artist in residence in the National Center of Genetic Resources in Mexico and received awards from Los Angeles Sustainability Collaborative, Clifton Webb Scholarship for the Arts, and Fundación Jumex.
