In two movements, Carolina Caycedo invites us to explore the inner and outer spaces of our bodies, our neighbors, and our locales. She begins inside, examining with a microscope the group's cheek cells, blood drops, saliva, skin, and hair, and asking questions about what we can see under the lens and what we want to remain invisible. Moving outside, to a group of telescopes, we'll explore landmarks and limits in three locales: the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park; SFMOMA in downtown San Francisco; and the San Francisco Art Institute in North Beach, just above Fisherman's Wharf. Conducting a kind of interior and exterior check-up, Caycedo lets us consider physical and social systems eluding our sight.
Caycedo's projects set-up alternative economies and new types of exchange between local communities and the seemingly global art world. In street actions, marches, barters, and banners, her works picture people and the social forms that surround, displace, or capture them. In her piece Eres Caleño? (Are you from Cali?), from III Festival de Performance de Cali (October 30, 1999), Caycedo interviewed native residents about their neighborhoods, the post-drug cartel cityscape, and their favorite and least favorite things about Cali. The recorded interviews create intimate and individual portraits of the city.
