"¡¿Que Barrio?!" El Centro entry
"Poles #1" Gelatin silver prints, plexiglass, wood. Dimensions variable.
This is on display at Johnny Cab, the site of the El Centro half of the "¡¿Que Barrio?!" exhibition. It and its partner (which is on display at the Mexicali half of the exhibition) make up a two-part series called "Poles" that attempts to study opposites and the epistemological queries raised by such a study. For example, can each opposing part be defined not just in relation to the other, but also by its own traits? Do they even possess their own traits, or only those that can be contrasted with the other's?
