Both shows by the Miami-based artists insist upon the primacy of material culture in the politics of representation. Lee-Chun’s objects and sculptures will move between display, fiction, artefact and kitsch, while certain social narratives underscore the personal subjectivity at stake in the materiality of culturally-produced objects, and Mayer will bring her Slumpies series to the space.
Mayer’s work in Day Off will show the vulnerability of bodies in virtual space, slumping, encumbered by head sets, and viewed in a video in a gallery to suggest that culture must account for the materiality of its digital production and use.
