Press release

Caroline Mesquita – Astray

With the introduction of video into her practice several years ago, many of which have depicted the artist herself engaged in various encounters with machines or her own metal sculptures, Caroline Mesquita’s works have increasingly examined the reciprocal exchange between humans and objects. Alternatingly tender, violent, and funny, such encounters show how objects shape us as much as we shape them. The poet Wislawa Szymborska once wrote, “you can find an entire cosmos lurking in its least remarkable objects.” Likewise, the capacity of objects to make worlds animates Caroline Mesquita’s current exploration of the vital energy that lurks both in and between all things.
