Samara Golden’s visually intoxicating installations take an M. C. Escher–esque dive through Alice’s looking glass, restaging domestic life through hand-built foam furniture and Mylar guitars. In a stream-of-consciousness approach to crafting open-ended spaces, Golden incorporates divergent pop-culture elements into intergenerational mash-ups of the past and future, constructed through sculpture, digital prints, audio, and video projection. The resulting installations broadcast an eerie, disorienting image of the American family’s dark underbelly.
Presented in partnership with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Golden’s solo exhibition at YBCA is on view March 11–June 19. Visit ybca.org for details.
