Los Jardines de México presents three related bodies of work, La Fosa Común, Akna and El Jardín de Juegos by Janelle Lynch. Images of overlooked or obscure urban and rural landscapes, they explore aspects of the life cycle—loss, death, regeneration—while simultaneously celebrating life and its intricate beauty.

La Fosa Común is a series of photographs made with an 8×10 camera in Mexico City’s common grave. The site is a burial place for the indigent and unidentified. Also made with an 8×10 camera, Akna is a series of portraits of tree stumps in a nature reserve that explores the theme of rebirth. “Akna,” in Mayan, means “mother” and is the goddess of birth and fertility. Made with a 4×5 camera, El Jardín de Juegos depicts the relics of a children’s recreation area, void of people and eclipsed by nature and neglect.”

The exhibition will be on view January 25 – April 14, 2013.

Thursday, December 1, 2011
Artist Talk at 5:30 pm
Opening Reception from 6:30 to 8:00pm

Janelle Lynch‘s photographs in her recent title, Los Jardines de México explore themes related to the life cycle and its representations in the urban and rural landscape. Made between 2002 and 2007, each project investigates, if not embraces, a specific facet of existence: loss, death, regeneration, and life. The exhibition is comprised of four series: El Jardín de Juegos, serving as her first project upon moving to Mexico City; Donde Andaba, juxtaposing wild plant life with architecture; Akna, anthropomorphizing tree stumps in a nature reserve; and La Fosa Común, focusing on a functioning, century-old common grave centrally located within the city. The combination of these four bodies of work, three from Mexico City and one from Chiapas, examines the persistence of life. ”
