“About 50,000 years ago an ape man named Homerbuctas masturbated in a field of prehistoric flowers giving birth to a legend, no, “The” Legend. For years, there have been reports of large, furry, smelly heaps residing in wooded areas around the world. These reports are supposed sightings of the cryptid (creature not yet verified by science), simply known to cryptozoologists as Mounds. I am, for reasons that I can’t quite explain, connected to these mysterious Mound creatures. I share a…

“It will gradually become apparent that at particular moments when there is within a society a crisis of belief…the sheer material factualness of the human body will be borrowed to lend that cultural construct the aura of ‘realness’ and ‘certainty.’ – Elaine Scarry, The Body in Pain: The Making and Unmaking of the World (1985) Suffering from Realness explores the politics of representation — and the ways in which artists use the body to grasp at and re-center the “aura…

We interact with an infinity of objects from birth to the grave. Over time our ‘belongings’ become more steeped and resonant with memory and nostalgia. In many ways, personal objects express aspects of who we are — our identity: our values: our statements and choices. The passages of time through which we exist become defined by the objects with which we interact.

Cauleen Smith We Already Have What We Need

MASS MoCA, 87 MASS MoCA Way
North Adams, MA 01247 United States

Cauleen Smith describes her work as a reflection on “the everyday possibilities of the imagination.” Trained as a filmmaker, the multidisciplinary artist creates visual and phenomenological experiences that ruminate on social, cultural, intellectual, artistic, and political liberation. Her stunning works draw on poetry, Afrofuturism, science fiction, and tactics of experimental film to conjure alternative narratives and what the artist has called “a cornucopia of future histories.” She engages topics and influences as disparate as the African Diaspora, the image of…
