Yesterday is Melting
Yesterday is Melting encapsulates a relentless pursuit of public agency in the face of colonial power, systemic oppression, and increasing genesis amnesia. Each work implicates audiences to acknowledge how we observe and participate in history. Sandy Williams IV strikes a balance in tension—interplaying the untouchable and the malleable, the passage of time and the infallible memory, the transparent and the concealed.
Additional works by ANTIESTABLISHED (Kate Turner, Warren Jones, and Williams), Mariana Parisca, and Monsieur Zohore respond to Williams’ engagement in the emancipation of public space. Together their disparate works unravel common structures of power and repression in the Americas.
