Sonia & Miriam Albert-Sobrino, On the Margins of Metaxy

Twin sisters, Sonia and Miriam Albert-Sobrino, explore transitory states of being through their film installation On the Margins of Metaxy. This is an immersive and contemplative experience, which allows the viewer to feel as though they are within the scenes projected, distorted, and reflected on multiple screens. The imagery of blinking eyes, reaching arms, and slow walks within water allude to lingering in a state of liminality and waiting to see what one might learn about oneself in the in-between.

BIO

Sonia and Miriam Albert-Sobrino (together known as the Also Sisters) left their home country of Spain in 2011 to pursue film in the United States. Since then, the Also Sisters have directed a number of films with selections at major film festivals such as Sitges, Edinburgh, Raindance, Cinespaña, and Chicago Underground. The Also Sisters are both Assistant Professors at the University of Utah’s Film and Media Arts Department.

Aïsha Lehmann, Mixed

Aïsha Lehmann’s work addresses what it means to be of mixed race today, when historically, interracial relationships were heavily patrolled and condemned. Using printmaking and drawing techniques, Lehmann has created large scale mixed media portraits on panel inspired by a series of interviews conducted with individuals of mixed-race. Each piece is full of visual symbols of the merging of two different yet complementary family lineages.

BIO

Aïsha Lehmann is currently in Brigham Young University’s Studio Art BFA program, with minors in Sociology and Africana Studies. She is an artist and researcher, grappling with the complexities of identity in race, ethnicity, gender, and spirituality.

TALK AT MODERN WEST FINE ART

The event is free, but limited to 50 people, RSVP required. Contact Modern West or find the event page at modernwestfineart.com to RSVP.
