OPENING SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2018
H I L D E L.A. is proud to present Husa's Garden, a solo presentation of paintings and sculptures by Camilla Engstrom on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Rooted in Engstrom's mythology of "Husa," the Swedish word for house maiden, Husa's Garden invites the viewer to join our heroine through her stages of enlightenment as she zig zags through multiple dimensions reality.
"The flowers are beginning their masquerade as people." Husa begins the fun. (Walter Crane, 1899)
How do we tell you about Husa? The first thing most people would say is "she is pink." The truth though is that she comes in many forms and it really depends on her mood. She is spiritual, though some have called her petty. She loves to drink wine and cause trouble, but she also meditates a lot. She's not yet an ascended saint, but she toys with the idea. In the garden, she moves quickly and if you aren't watching she'll rile up the flora and fauna, causing some of the flowers to get horny or others to laugh hysterically. Sometimes she whispers secrets to flowers and they get very angry. She never strays from a little controversy. Husa does not believe in an ugly world and employs her relationship with Mother Earth to make everything better. When it rains and thunders, you'll find her dancing, mostly to Drake's God's Plan. The conundrum of Husa's path to enlightenment may sound familiar to you, you probably know Husa. Meet us in Husa's Garden (6-9pm) for Engstrom's exhibition and stay for Husa's dance party (9-late.)
