CROSSROADS
solo exhibition at Enoch Pratt Free Library
Baltimore, MD
April 25th-July 1st 2024

Crossroads features new-site specific wall-collages as well as a selection of work from Hoesy Corona's "Climate Ponchos" series created during his residency. This ongoing body of work depicts ambiguous silhouettes moving through space using the archetype of the traveler.

Each visual vignette depicts anonymous figures traversing through lush botanicals, coastal shores, and mountain-scapes, while the extent or reasoning for their passage is undisclosed. Upon closer examination, each traveler is seen carrying personal belongings via suitcases and backpacks as they navigate through and adapt to the dilemma of climate-induced global migration.

While each of Corona's climate ponchos narrates individual stories of transit, they collectively conceptualize a larger account of climate-triggered journeying. Corona intentionally uses silhouettes to obscure identity and intentions, inviting the viewer to see themselves in each work and bear witness to the pursuit of a better life.
