Liverpool Biennial is delighted to announce the release of a limited edition silkscreen print by Teresa Solar. 

This work serves as a companion print to her newly commissioned outdoor installation, titled Osteoclast (I do not know how I came to be on board this ship, this navel of my ark), exhibited at Liverpool Biennial 2021: The Stomach and the Port.

Her work for Liverpool Biennial 2021 reflects on Liverpool’s history as one of the most active ports in facilitating transatlantic trade in Europe. Solar draws a parallel between bones – as hollowed structures, full of cavities, carriers of tissues, veins and cell communities – and vessels, vehicles of migration, transmitters of bodies and knowledge.

Teresa Solar (b.1985) lives and works in Madrid, Spain. Solar works across sculpture, video, drawing and photography. Her exhibitions usually function as complete ecosystems of thought, creating complex worlds that either draw from literary works of fiction, mythology, Natural History or more terrestrial narratives that are close to her personal history. Her practice has been focused around verbal and sensorial language capacity, including the process of translation and the construction of meaning through words and bodily enactments. In this sense, Solar approaches her sculptures and installations as corporeal functions that relate to the industrial world, where hybrid forms of existence are constantly produced; her objects, then, constitutea crossbreed between the manmade, the natural and the mythical.

Recent exhibitions include Index Foundation, Stockholm (2019); Galería Travesía Cuatro Ciudad de México, México (2019); Haus der Kunst, Munich (2018); and Der Tank, Basel (2018).
