Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is pleased to present artist Casey Tang’s new exhibition, To Carry the Earth, a spatialized audio and sculptural installation that investigates the limitations of dominant Western dialectical logic and egocentric frames of reference.

Drawing from the artist’s extensive research into the history of systems science and psycholinguistic spatial frames of reference (FoR), the site-specific project speaks to the ways individuals, communities, and cultures make sense of the multiscalar processes underlying the phenomena we experience.

“When I speak, I rely on the English subject and predicate to make a daily prayer to relative and intrinsic separation. This grammatical structure was first conjured centuries ago by the Peripatetic school using Aristotelian logic. Today, when I intake phenomena and push air through my mouth to crudely fit what I sense into the same old syntax and metaphors, I reflow the past into the present, sending a constant perturbation in our meaning systems. When enough of us do this, we aggregate these values into our Reality––amplifying the boundary conditions of things and beings while placing everything in a Patritus, Bruno, Gassendi, or Newtonian infinite three-dimensional void." - Casey Tang

Cuchifritos Gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday, 12-6p (or by appointment), and the exhibition runs through July 29, 2023.
