FORCE MAJEURE (2017)
& gallery, Miami, FL
Presented from the personal South Florida encounter of Hurricane Irma, Oracle is a swirling hurricane-soaked denim vortex displaying the multi-faceted realities of surviving the environmental and social turbulences of 2017.
Blue Jeans collected over the course hurricane season, carry traces from standing guard; tied around fence posts as Irma made her way over South Florida. Audio recorded from the events during and after the storm archive both intimate and communal experience of facing a storm.
Zastera encompasses the growing barriers, foreign meddling, attacks on LGBTQ rights, and admissions tipping points of the socio-political and environmental climate making up the ‘American’ landscape, resulting in a very literally monstrous and enthralling storm.
