Creating a safe space in visual culture
Greenhouse Auctions is presenting ‘Querencia’, an auction dedicated to the creation of a safe space. Be it physical, emotional or psychological, whether drawn from memory or by the touch of fantasy, a ‘querencia’ is the space we have all carved out for ourselves. As part of a series of auctions that address on the impact of the pandemic, the first two of which addressed the surge of creativity and awareness in our own physicality, this auction celebrates the power in creating a space that is uniquely ours. Twenty-five artists present an artwork that addresses the subject: from odes to nostalgia to intimate interiors and architectural wonders, Querencia offers twenty-five uniquely safe spaces to inhabit.
