La Bodega y Mas

La Bodega y Mas, 2018, storefront installation, dimensions variable, sewn trash bags on canvas
For Good to Know's El Espacio Miami exhibition, RATA Projects will present a site-specific installation by artist Fanny Allié in the Coin Laundromat storefront and exhibition space. The project is comprised of Allié’s life-size characters sewn out of plastic trash bags onto free-hanging canvas. The pieces will be visible from the exterior to engage passersby, as well as from within the space itself. Allié’s nomadic and marginalized figures connect with the history and environment of Little Havana, activating the empty storefront with their bold presence and drawing outside viewers to the exhibition within. Little Havana, which is known to be the home to many immigrants - moving from one place to another – will also be the temporary shelter to Allié’s itinerant characters, frozen in motion during their journey.
