Memory Proposition was a gazing ball and projection installation and video piece created for Disclaimer Gallery's Show, "DESTROY & CONQUER" at Satellite Art Fair in Miami Beach in 2016. Shanti Lalita played a little Bach in the space while the projection was going, please scroll to see her piece.
Here is some information about the show...
“[W]hatever they have not pounced on like many eyed birds of prey, does not appear in the language you speak. This is apparent precisely in the intervals that your masters have not been able to fill with their words...[I]n all that which is not a continuation of their discourse, in the zero, the O, the perfect circle that you invent to imprison them and to overthrow them.”
- Les Guerilleres, Monique Wittig
What if worlds were actually run by women and queer folk? How do we see and materialize the existence of such a reality? In order to defeat the entities we now confront, we require new systems of every kind. We must decide how to rebuild from the ground up, and provide models to celebrate this process. Rin Johnson, Shaina Yang, Sarah Wang, Sessa Englund, Dava Frog Wing and Shanti Latita, provide propositions, celebratory ephemera and meditations for the rebuilding of a society which has been dismantled and has crumbled around their feet. Disclaimer Gallery is proud to present, 'Destroy & Conquer' a 4 day exhibition at Satellite Art Fair in Miami Beach.
Disclaimer Gallery is a gallery run by and for queer and women of color. We are dedicated to sustaining a gallery run by low income people to showcase low income people and otherly marginalized groups. Low income as in low income, zero assets, zero trust funds, zero fucking beer sponsorships. We want this gallery to be a vivid expression of the experimental and non-hierarchical nature of the Silent Barn. We want to embrace our role within a larger organism. We are queer woman and nonbinary people of different racial backgrounds and that is who we will be showcasing. We value representation, accessibility, and fighting dominant power structures within the art world.
