Cammie Staros: What Will Have Being

February 11, 2021

In this video, Cammie Staros' provides insight into her current exhibition, What Will Have Being. These works draw the relics of fallen empires into discourse with contemporary political and environmental instabilities, considering the legacy of our species on this planet. Creating a throughline between ancient past and possible future, the works suggest a museological exhibition of antiquities that has been forgotten and reclaimed by nature. Works in the exhibition upend traditional display tactics with melting light fixtures, architectural interventions, and ceramic vessels submerged into their own living ecosystems.
