WORK BY SOFÍA CÓRDOVA – CURATED BY JACKIE CLAY
February 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - May 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pmFree
Born in Carolina, Puerto Rico, and currently based in Oakland, California, Sofía Córdova‘s work considers “sci-fi and futurity, dance and music culture(s), the internet, mystical objects, extinction and mutation, migration, and climate change under the conditions of late capitalism and its technologies” (Córdova). They (Córdova uses both she and they pronouns) primarily focus on performance, music, video, and installation.
Córdova is interested in the future as a site for alternative histories, climate change and colonialism, and the mythic and mystic mechanisms people employ to make sense of the incomprehensible. While they are dubious about the earth’s future, they see it as a site of possibility despite the dystopian undertones of their work. Ultimately, Córdova’s work asks: “what forms of liberation lie in clearing the decks and starting anew for those bodies whose lives have historically been predicated by the violence of marginality?” (Córdova)
