Terminal 136 is pleased to present the MFA Thesis Exhibition “Mending Wall: A Relic of Truth” by Lauren Riojas-Fitzpatrick.

“In Mending Wall: A Relic of Truth,” Riojas-Fitzpatrick uses a gabion wall as a primary source of inspiration. This type of wall is created by the elemental material of wire manipulated into a cage-like form, that is in turn filled with stones – the wall is permeable by air, water, sight, and sound, yet still evokes a physical barrier. The gabion wall is a metaphor for the counterintuitive nature in the notion of two separate, distinct sides – that is rather a singular space hinged by a psychological construct.
