Cathy Hsaio and Damon Locks, MIGRATIONS BLUE LINE | SCULPTURE ORCHESTRA 阿里山

Screenprint, 18″ x 18″

Commissioned by Homeroom/Spudnik Press for Ten x Ten 2017 Dual Practices

The cultural geographies of Hsiao and Locks are mapped together. The print takes Chicago’s Blue Line train as center stage with a patterning score, which interrupts and compliments. The sound rearranges a traditional Taiwanese folk song for guitar, sculptural objects, molds, analog sampling and hip-hop. Sculpture Orchestra is an improvisation-based work that transforms sculptures and mold into performative objects by activating interior spaces and surfaces of sculptures.
