In My Alien Abduction, Garcia creates enigmatic symbology to mythologize the acts of abduction and appropriation. It’s madness, really … and it was served with wine, cheese, a raffle and short works by aspiring writers and performers during the opening reception on February 4, 2017 — TribeLA Magazine attended.
My Alien Abduction is Garcia’s pursuit to recover that which was taken from him … from a culture and a people. He does this through the manipulation of a digital program that in and of itself is a device of appropriation.
The result is a series of images that serves the myth of power by taking back his own. This is an act of re-appropriation that deals with abduction of land, self and alien abduction. See the entire exhibit at the following link… The exhibit supports the non-profit performance art space, Highways in Santa Monica.
