Florida House was shown for the first time, outside digital space, in the exhibition Transplants,
curated by Ellen Sturm Niz at Amos Eno Gallery , New York, July, 2023.
Transplants explores the act of moving a living thing from one place to another, whether a human being, a culture, an internal organ, or a botanical specimen. In each instance, the transplants undergo both a physical migration and transformation of identity as they adapt to their new surroundings. The hope is they grow new roots and thrive, but there is also potential peril if the new environment proves inhospitable.
This theme resonates with me because it reflects the inherent human desire for exploration, growth, and adaptation,” Niz said. “We are constantly seeking new experiences, new connections, and new environments that challenge and shape us. Transplants invites viewers to contemplate the complexities and consequences of these movements, both literal and metaphorical.
... sparking conversations on important topics such as identity, belonging, cultural exchange, and environmental impact. I invite viewers to reflect on their own experiences of transplantation and consider the broader implications of movement and adaptation in our interconnected world."
