Las Hermanas Iglesias is a project-based collaboration by two sisters, which incorporates a variety of relationships and structures for collectivity. Lisa Iglesias grounds her individual practice in drawing and painting across a variety of materials and processes. Janelle Iglesias works with and through objects to create sculpture and installation.
Las Hermanas speaks to their identities as woven into histories and philosophies of feminism and collaboration. As the children of Norwegian and Dominican immigrants who grew up in Queens, New York City, their project-based, trans-disciplinary work explores issues of hybridity, social participation and transnational identities. Their collective has fluidly evolved to include a number of team efforts and variations including steady collaborations with their mother, Bodhild. Through employing playful structures that respond to the community and geographical context of each project, Las Hermanas Iglesias create artworks that disrupt borders, engage absurdity, and promote the benefits of working together.
