Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2018
8 x 8 x 8 feet
Lionel Cruet’s Reverb/Ensemble Space is a multi-sensory installation within a porous cube that visitors are invited to enter. Each wall of the cube produces sound, taking cues from musical instruments—tambourines, strings, pipes, guiros—while the sand covered floor provides texture and the translucent tarp ceiling colors the light within.
Lionel Cruet (b. San Juan, PR in 1989; lives and works in New York, NY and San Juan, PR) received his BFA from Escuela de Artes Plásticas in 2011 and MFA from The City College of New York in 2014. His interest in geopolitics, economy, and technology is demonstrated through his works through experimental digital printing process, audiovisual materials, performance, and installation.
Cruet had a solo exhibition at the Bronx River Art Center, Bronx, NY (2015). In addition, he participated in multiple group exhibitions that include, Seen and Heard, Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, NY (2017), Colonial Comfort, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico, San Juan, PR (2015), and SuperReal: Alternative Realities in Photography and Video, El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY (2013).
