CATHY LU: CUSTOMS DECLARATION

CATHY LU: CUSTOMS DECLARATION

JULY 10 – SEPTEMBER 15, 2021

For Customs Declaration, CATHY LU strings together nearly 2,000 pieces of slipcast ceramic fruit into an elaborate net suspended over the bridge outside BAC. As an artist of Taiwanese descent who grew up in Miami, her work unpacks how experiences of immigration, cultural hybridity, and cultural assimilation become part of the larger American identity. Lu has long been interested in various fruits as evocative reminders of distant homelands.

The community was invited to participate in this latest iteration of the project by sharing their own fruit stories via voice message. Selected recordings are shared as part of the finished work.
