Kade Twist’s solo exhibition, For Instance, Look at the Land Beneath Your Feet, examines the language and rhetoric of real estate, commerce, development and commodification of space within the context of the recent financial crisis. The media-based work is comprised of a series of dialogues and monologues delivered by two real estate professionals. The installation explores linguistic synchronicities of volume, tone, lexicon, repetition and narrative, as well as physical synchronicities of gesture, expression, movement, composure and loss of composure. The installation comprises a metanarrative of place, value and identity within the vastly developing desert southwest, and builds from meditation into overlapping, interruptive cacophony, creating a symphony of voice, intonation and individual will.

Twist is an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma.
