Corner Piece 1 was exhibited along with a selection of Home Body drawings and salt sculptures in a 2-person show at 555 12th Street, near Oakland City Center, through the
Oakland Museum of California.
Covarrubias investigates our physical and psychological connection to our environments. The very basic material of paper is transformed into an experience of space, light, and sound. While this
installation responds to the architecture of the site, it also creates space for and about internal reflection – a contemplative sanctuary made specifically for a very public area. In this way,
the physical presence or absence of the audience is as important to the piece as the sculptural elements.
