Exhibition Reception: lazos terrenales / earthly bonds

Edra Soto

In lazos terrenales / earthly bonds, Edra Soto employs the patterns and materials found in Puerto Rican architecture to examine colonial histories, diasporic identities, and constructed social orders. lazos terrenales / earthly bonds extend Soto’s ongoing series titled “Graft,” which utilizes rejas (wrought iron screens) to facilitate architectural intervention and social practice. Through the geometric patterns in these rejas—a building element common on homes, businesses, and public structures throughout Puerto Rico—Soto introduces personal and shared histories to broader audiences.
