Giovanna Cerise, JudiLynn India, JadeYu Fhang and Elin Egoyan at La Maison d'Aneli

Opening today, Tuesday, January 28, 12:30 pm slt, at La Maison d'Aneli, curated by Aneli Abeyante, is a group exhibition of works by artists Giovanna Cerise, JudiLynn India, JadeYu Fhang and Elin Egoyan. On the lower floor of the gallery, split into two areas, one will find the works by Elin and JudiLynn—both artists are using the opportunity to showcase real life artworks (middle image).

Higher up, in two separate galleries, are installations by Giovanna and JadeYu. In Giovanna's work, Get Lost, (top image), we find a large room of intersecting rectangular blocks, all in a contained palette of violet, tan, black and white, through which red and black human figures are furtively darting (running from something, perhaps?), while within these somewhat translucent blocks are the forms of hands outstretched. I found it quite captivating, and it grew on me over time. JadeYu's works are installed in a similarly sized space (although it felt to me like more would be welcome), with Ce qu'il restera! (detail shown, lower image) filling the central space, and it certainly appears as though something unpleasant is happening. Three other works surround this, mounted on the walls, and I was left uncertain as to what their formal relationship might be to the central material, if any. If you enjoy the gallery, a tip jar is located near the landing point.
