Beatriz Cortez and Candice Lin’s two-person exhibition explores histories and experiences of diaspora and migration through sculpture; these works challenge the viewer to see non-human objects through the lens of performance.
Cortez’s works create portals that enable connections across time and space, eliciting experiences of simultaneity. Visitors are invited to interact with her work, which evokes a yearning for a distant land, establishing connections across cultural, commercial, and human exchanges along the Americas.
Concurrently, Lin’s multi-part installation obliquely addresses the history of Asian indentured laborers through examining the circulation and value of goods produced by these people and the relationships between race and linguistics, in the formation of the human. By tracing the materialist histories of colonial goods and placing them in entropic relation to one another, the work seeks to generate new orientations, stories, and ways of being.
