Want.Here.You.Now is the latest installation in YBCA’s open-to-the-community art space, the Room for Big Ideas. It features works of art by Kenneth Lo, Ana Teresa Fernandez, and Jennifer Locke in the mediums of light, video, sculpture, photo, and text. These artists explore our complex and often fragmented connections to others, and each piece offers an interactive experience paired with unexpected media, in a combined effort to begin to uncover what we lose and gain as we move through our lives.
Ana Teresa Fernandez’s installation, FIND, presents an abstracted reflection of truth: fragmented and multi-faceted particles of reflections that reveal to us our surroundings.
Kenneth Lo presents his latest monument to one of several of his latest relationships to go awry. His lightbox sculpture, with the long, borderline-TMI, title, your issues vs mine until we both explode into silence (For T. I promised bittersweet art about you in a late night drunk text I sent one week after the last time you left me. sorry if i had more fun than you did.) attempts to redeem failure with beauty, and make heartbreak look fun.
Jennifer Locke’s extremely intimate interactive piece consists of one-on-one performances that take place in YBCA visitors’ homes with only a camera as an audience. Documentation of each piece, as well as instructions about how visitors can participate, will be on display in the Room for Big Ideas.
