Celebrating Nataša Prosenc Stearns' "Caryatids" at Mauro Café: A Fusion of Ancient Grace and Modern Digital Artistry

Sedition is thrilled to announce that Nataša Prosenc Stearns' groundbreaking exhibition, Caryatids, featuring a captivating blend of large prints and digital video iterations, is being showcased at Mauro Café on Melrose, Los Angeles. This exhibition, which runs from 21 March through June 16, 2024, represents a significant milestone in the fusion of traditional motifs with contemporary digital art forms. The opening artist reception will take place on March 21, 2024, 6 pm – 8 pm, at Mauro Café, 8112 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA.

Nataša Prosenc Stearns, a visionary Slovenian-born visual artist and filmmaker, has long been at the forefront of exploring innovative visual storytelling techniques. Her latest work, Caryatids, is no exception. Drawing inspiration from the ancient Greek caryatids—statues of women used as architectural supports—Stearns reimagines these figures within a modern context, integrating silhouettes of women with elements of contemporary Los Angeles architecture. This melding of ancient and modern celebrates women's strength and resilience and challenges traditional gender roles within both societal and architectural realms.

"I am excited to share these images with L.A. audiences," says Nataša Prosenc Stearns. "Once immobile female pillars now beam with turbulence, wind in their hair and clothes. Confirming their significance in today’s changing gender landscape, they resist the confinement of the orthogonal masculine shapes of the architectural grids. They no longer carry buildings and decorate facades; they connect the sky and the earth, confirming their role in cosmological integrity."

The exhibition at Mauro Café, organized in collaboration with SEEfest (the South East European Film and Cultural Festival), presents an opportunity for Los Angeles audiences to experience Stearns' artistry firsthand. Evelyne Joan, the esteemed proprietor of Mauro Café, expresses her enthusiasm about hosting this collection, emphasizing the significance of showcasing the role of women as community pillars, especially during International Women's Month.
