Interpolations employs an established system of written symbols in a contemplative and sociolinguistic exploration of ideas in the realm of individual and collective identity. Laying bare the innate power of the vernacular to delineate and divide with its seemingly innocuous presence, Kristin Leigh Calhoun pares down language as subject in order to address the role that interpretation plays in our lived and perceived relationships. The phenomenological experience of ‘self’ and ‘other,’ simultaneously precious and common, is reflected in this grouping of elegantly wrought typographic drawings. Sophisticated and refined in their attention to material, these ambiguous and mercurial works reveal, conceal, and ultimately challenge the structural logic of our historically, culturally, and individually prescribed social parameters.
