Regina José Galindo was born in 1974 in Guatemala City. She has completed residencies with Le Plateau, Paris (2005); Artpace, San Antonio, Texas (2008); and Chateau Třebešice, Czech Republic (2009).

Working in the context of a newly democratized society, Galindo has developed a socially and politically motivated practice in which she strives to acknowledge the thirty-six years of civil war her country endured, but also looks forward to a more peaceful and productive future. In her most celebrated work, Who Can Erase the Traces? (Quién puede borrar las huellas?, 2003), she walked barefoot through the streets of Guatemala City, from the Palacio Nacional de la Cultura to the Corte de Constitucionalidad, carrying a basin filled with human blood into which she periodically dipped her feet. The trail of footprints visualized her reaction to the recent news that Efraín Ríos Montt, a former military dictator responsible for the most destructive period of the country’s internal conflict, had been permitted to run for president despite constitutional prohibitions. In this work, the line between Galindo’s body as object and subject was so subtle that the blood covering her feet appeared to be her own; she embodied the war’s victims, taking their blood as hers and appropriating their suffering.

The Art of Perfume | Cliona Doyle at SO Fine Art Editions

The Art of Perfume | Cliona Doyle at SO Fine Art Editions

28 September to 4 November

The Burren Perfumery, maker of small batch perfumes and cosmetics inspired by the iconic limestone of the Burren landscape and its unique flora, collaborates with artist Cliona Doyle to create a unique look for the Perfumery’s fragrances based on the landscape and flora of the Burren.

The subject of each artwork was chosen to reflect a particular aspect or season of the Burren. Over the course of a year, Cliona recorded the plants and landscapes of the Burren on copper plates, then developed each work into her unique botanical style. From the fresh spring flowers of the fragrant orchid for the Ilaun eau de parfum through to red berries of hawthorn for Winter Woods eau de toilette, each perfume in turn found its muse.
