Celilrie is the solo work of New Orleans native artist Cecelia Fernandes whose work in the collaboration C+J has been part of several group shows including Politico Pop Up, New Orleans Art Center, 2015, 2016; Louisiana Photography Biennial, 2016; Room With A View, Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans, 2016; and the 2015 and current 2017 Louisiana Contemporary, Ogden Museum exhibition.

Her first solo exhibition which takes the form of an instillation, “The Birth of All Things” is comprised of over a dozen works, including a smaller instillation within the larger entitled “Closeted” and several sculptural pieces. In this space she takes aim at historical origins and contemporary pressure points that structure and fertilize the grounds of our present day social woes. Our past and present collide in a slow, soft motion to speculate at a distant future.
