BRIC presents Jonathan González: 'The Smallest Unit Is Each Other'
The video installation centers surrealist narratives based on climate justice, Black ecology, hybridity, and migration. González (they/them) juxtaposes original video content alongside archival ephemera, creating a graphic, impressionistic effect. The artist believes that storytelling is not just what makes us human, it is also a radical form of reshaping colonial perceptions of the environment; to retell what is biologically understood and explore these new narrative possibilities. The title, The Smallest Unit Is Each Other, is both a message and an invitation to consider the smallest unit is not the individual but the community as we require each other for survival.
This concept is engrained through organizing the various elements within the installation, which Gonzáles refers to as sides. For González, each piece–the video sides, the chair, the consol pad–together create a larger narrative. Each side is choreographed in relationship to the other. How one interacts with the different sides is based on their own choosing.Venue: BRIC
