Can You See Us Now?
Created specifically for "The Interventionists: Art in the Social Sphere," subRosa mapped the intersections of women’s material and affective labor in North Adams, MA, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico after discovering that the museum itself was a former capacitor factory whose production had moved south of the US border. Two large aerial wall maps of North Adams and Ciudad Juárez, with map pins and legends denoting “points of view” hung above a “forensic floor” that concealed 12 spaces filled with objects, texts, and clues beneath loose boards.
