You, Me and the Other | Elysa D. Batista
On view September 3 – November 13, 2016
924 Vitrine | 924 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach

Batista’s sculptural text acts as an inanimate presence watching over the viewer. The text work is paired with footage taken from a live feed camera installed on Lincoln Road Mall, only blocks away from ArtCenter/South Florida. Through this work Batista exposes our lack of privacy and the overwhelming presence of social surveillance in today’s world.

Her three-dimensional work explores personal experiences with power dynamics in relationships and communication and is interpreted through the use of semiotics.
