BLK MNGO (above) is a short exceprt from a longer video collaboration by Rachel Debuque and Justin Plakas.
Mango Sherbet spans a variety of influences including the aesthetic considerations of the American southwest, birthday celebrations, and Filipino food. These sources meld together to create a spatial identity that is both in accord with logic and divorced from it. This organizational limbo extends to the objects in the space, which hang in the middle of what is the familiar and alien. Formally, the entire room ungulates between two and three dimensions. It forces the eye to reconsider the difference between perceived and physical space. This exhibition was installed at Vox Populi in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
