Yautepec Gallery is honored to present its second individual exhibition for Mexico City-based artist, Marion Sosa (b. Mexico City, 1982). The exhibition, entitled "Deep Cuts," explores the process of artistic reevaluation.
Its title alludes to the historic approach to album-making within pop music, in which the conventional wisdom dictates that an album needs just one single—its "hit" song—and the rest can be considered more or less filler. Those tracks that rarely get radio airplay are called the "deep cuts."
In constructed photography, the idea is much the same. A session of dozens or even thousands of photos will often result in just a single selected photo. Now critical of this approach, Marion has returned to her earlier body of constructed photography in order to exhaustively comb through each session's photos in search of "outtake" images—or the "deep cuts"—that resonate emotionally without the intentionality of the constructed results of the sessions—without the blatant effort to make a pop hit, as it were.
As displayed in the gallery, the "outtake" images will be paired with their constructed counterparts in order to contextualize the selection for the viewer and circuitously define the changing nature of Sosa's own aesthetic criteria as an artist.
