Refugio (shelter) is an artistic proposal developed around home, identity and the nostalgia of when people migrate to another place, that place that is often a geographical space and other times just a mental space.

Through ceramic architectural sculptures, Lorenzo makes allegorical representations of houses with pictorial elements loaded with personal and collective stories, which invite the viewer to inquire about their own physical and mental displacements.

With this exhibition, Lorenzo Lugo McKelvain builds a village of shelters that store narratives and memories, paying homage to those places of containment and protection that people create or find along the way to take refuge or give refuge.
