SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2018: "Stranger Comes to Town"
"Superheated" - Booth 2318
Artists: Rachelle Dang, Elizabeth Englander, Zac Hacmon, Kyoko Hamaguchi, Eleanor King, Jessica Mensch
“Superheated” looks at strange and overheated encounters – from the arctic to the tropics, from the past to the future to late last night. Through video, sculpture, photography, and installation, the six artists of “Superheated” foreground questions of otherness at the site of the seemingly familiar, revealing the fictional, historical, ideological, and illusory at play in every entanglement.

I rebuilt part of the foundation of my family’s home over the concrete floor of my New York studio. I wanted to align and acknowledge two very different worlds. This hybrid platform enabled me to ask how historical projects are literally brought home, how they can be actualized in my world and in the viewer’s presence. Copper boxes were positioned like mysterious columns; ceramic cast breadfruits stood in for absent occupants. Viewers entered an environment situated between growth and decay.
