Made for OMR Gallery Lago/Algo, México.

Using social space to direct the human experience, our frustrations, and anxieties while creating outlets is something Alica Framis facilitates often with her work. The exhibit Shake Your Body at LAGO/ALGO welcomes you with the work Leave here your fears (2022) by Alicia Framis. 

Leave Here Your Fears was born from the artist's experiences during the pandemic, in which for many, moments of uncertainty affected our way of being. Recently, these insecurities have increased with increasing war and global chaos in which we live. We have developed more fears, doubts, tears, anger, melancholy, loneliness, and, above all, stress. But, on the other hand, these experiences have given us the opportunity to acquire more solidarity, more humility, and greater acceptance of risk.

Leave Here Your Fears is a triangle made of mirrors that rotates in the center of the room. With this interactive sculpture, the artist Alicia Framis invites you to deposit your fears and prejudices. This awareness is necessary in order to have the exchange of giving and receiving to each other while abandoning our apparent differences. The rhinestone-shaped vessel operates as a memorial to free yourself, abandon your fears, and reconnect with your environment and others. 

Functioning as a sanctuary to connect with the world. Alicia Framis frees anyone who is willing to leave their psychological obstacles and be available in support to each other, allowing people to materialize and erase their daily toxic thoughts.
