Planeta Sandra: Sandra Cordero
The first New York solo exhibition by Cuban artist Sandra Cordero, Planeta Sandra was a pop-up exhibit on display in the Lazy Susan Gallery at 191 Henry Street which ran from
October 10th through 13th, 2019.
Thomas Nickles Project is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Sandra Cordero (b. Havana, Cuba 1979). This will be the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in New York City. This pop-up exhibition will be held at Lazy Susan Gallery, 191 Henry Street with an opening party on Thursday, October 10th at 6PM. The artist will be present.
We join the artist on a journey of discovery to a world where precision cut, multilayered and dimensional paper collages spring to life as the whimsical personalities that make up the thriving inhabitants of Planeta Sandra. With an explorer’s eye and a botanist’s discipline, Sandra meticulously catalogs each specimen by genus and species with invented scientific names.
“In these collages, I deconstruct everyday forms to create new narratives. Through the use of nature, science and whimsy, I invent new landscapes and environments in a visual language that is uniquely my own.”
Sandra studied Film Direction at Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA), Havana, Cuba.
Her work has been included in group exhibitions in the United States, including a recent show in Greenwich, Connecticut. The artist currently lives and works in Union City, New Jersey
