Joiri Minaya

    Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL 2018

    Tropticon,

    Aluminum, polycarbonate sheets, one-way vision perforated vinyl, wood

    12 x 16 x 10 feet

    PROJECT:
    For Tropticon, Joiri Minaya appropriates a retail backyard greenhouse and cloaks it in one-way perforated vinyl printed with pixelated botanical images. The installation poses questions of visibility—from the outside the interior will be obscured, whereas from within the piece will function as a panopticon—while destabilizing the greenhouse’s function as colonial repository of tropical plants.
