Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle-JuggernautWhat: Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle: Juggernaut
When: Saturday, December 19 to Sunday, December 20, 2015
Where: Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego
Description: Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle’s work utilizes natural forms such as clouds, icebergs, and DNA as metaphors to interrogate social issues. Often using video and sculpture, Manglano-Ovalle’s work connects politics and culture by representing the underlying forces of human interaction and intervention. His video installation, Juggernaut, was filmed in El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve in Baja California, the largest protected area in Mexico. While El Vizcaíno is perhaps best known as the mating site for gray whales at the beginning of each year, Manglano-Ovalle turns his attention away from the beauty of the natural landscape. Instead, the artist focuses on the industrial activity that surrounds the region. As the video pans across the expanse of salt mines, Manglano-Ovalle highlights the complicated relationship between society and the natural environment.

Cost: $0 – $10
