Yellow Butterflies & Flowers​
Altar Installation Commemorating Gabriel Garcia Marquez
On View: Oct. 22 - Nov. 8, 2015


The contributions of Gabriel García Márquez to the literary cannon and the socio-cultural fiber of those who inhabit the Americas is beyond measure. For those who have traversed in search of dreams; who had to recreate a sense of place in a foreign space, Macondo has provided sanctuary, an oasis for the weary traveler in their journey to a new land, a new home. We wish to honor the gifts he left us with, at our altar this year, join us in this humble offering.

Shinpei Takeda identifies himself as post Americanized, culturally displaced Japanese living in Mexico and Germany, or as he otherwise calls it: hemispheric. When he isn't traveling between Germany, the US and his native Japan, he is a border dweller. He lives and works in Tijuana, crossing to San Diego regularly, easily falling back into the daily bustle of existing on the worlds busiest border crossing.
