Intersections – The Power of Collective Thought and Action

Posted: March 9, 2018 in Uncategorized

Amalia Pica uses sculpture, performance, installation and photography to explore the nuances of communication. Her 2013 work A ∩ B ∩ C (read as A intersection B intersection C) references the fact that, during the 1970s, Argentina’s military junta forbade Venn diagrams and the related concept of intersection from being taught in elementary schools, viewing it as potentially subversive. In A ∩ B ∩ C, performers manipulate translucent colored shapes, producing configurations that use intersection as an invitation to reimagine collaboration and community. Returned to the walls at the performance’s conclusion, the shapes seemed endowed with a new communicative potential.
