Layla Zubi: They Cannot Represent Themselves; They Must be Represented
They Cannot Represent Themselves; They Must be Represented introduces various sized obelisks as sculptures that reveal the geographical and historical events and comparisons, pairing it with the continuous, homogenized image of "American identity" and the physical objects associated with them. This work references the obelisk that is erected in New York City's Central Park known as "Cleopatra's Needle" including select items that were buried beneath the obelisk in a time capsule. The artist's home region of Southern Illinois bears the name known as "Little Egypt" is another reference found within the work. They Cannot Represent Themselves; They Must be Represented features work by Layla Zubi (M.F.A. '22).
Masks must be worn at all times in the Tjaden and Experimental Galleries.
