Tinsel Town is a cultural and environmental exploration of home for GeoVanna. Her relocation to Berlin resulted in an objectivity that allowed a closer look at The Entertainment Capital’s obsession with status, reputation and wealth; how it effects the physical appearance of the Los Angeles cityscape and the declining condition of the environment. Gonzalez displays the appearance-driven mindset of Angelenos in the way that success is authenticated through superficiality. This sentiment is cyclicly reflected and generated by advertisements such as "Be the envy of your neighborhood without restarting your lawn." However, lush lawns, overgrown gardens, fountains, and poolside living does not come without a cost to the natural world, in a time when drought due to climate changes obligates Southern Californians to rethink their luxurious life styles. Tinsel Town mirrors these notions and exposes The City of Angels for what it has become: a regrettable ripple effect on our natural landscape in exchange for a small fleck of gold.
Opening hours: 17h - 22h.
