Absentee Authority
references the point where "deconstructive analyses and identity politics" converge. The work of Laura Perez Insua, JD Hardy, Lisa McCarthy, Tatiana Mesa Pajan, and Carola Miles illuminates this paradox. Using line, color, light and metal to navigate the place where trauma can be present with an absent subject. Or where the subject returns to the scene of a vacant trauma.
