Winter Workspace 2019
Glyndor Gallery | Feb 19–March 31

With a background in art and urban architecture, artist Liene Bosquê’s work engages with the sensorial relationship between people and personal places. She has exhibited work at Socrates Sculpture Park, MoMA PS1, Mana Contemporary, Chicago and at other cultural institutions and galleries throughout the US and abroad. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Sao Paulo State in Brazil, a Bachelor of Architecture and Urbanism degree from Mackenzie University in Brazil and an MFA in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Bosquê works in sculpture, installation and site-specific projects to transform architecture, using drawing, cutting, engraving and imprinting techniques. Drawing on the methods of an archeologist or anthropologist, she re/creates traces of existing or lost structures to engage with conceptual boundaries of space, memory and history. While at Wave Hill for our 2019 Winter Workspace program, Bosquê reflected on the relationship between nature and architecture, engaging with the environmentally-controlled spaces of our greenhouses, Marco Polo Conservatory and Pergola, uisng the mediums of silk, cotton, rust, dyes and cyanotypes. She lead a cyanotype workshop on March 10.
