Those that belong to the Emperor explores, analyzes and playfully disrupts the seemingly invisible order that governs the way in which we group, juxtapose, compare and categorize things. Dainesha Nugent-Palache, Gregory McCarthy, Rachel Guglielmelli, Sonet Providence and Taikun Kambashi explore language; perception; and the organization and hierarchy of personals experiences as sites where this order of things manifests itself. In their works, these artists propose new arbitrary ways for indexing memory. They have created systems that reveal their own structural contradictions. The exhibition’s title references the fictitious taxonomy presented by Jorge Luis Borges in his 1942 Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge.
