Artist Statement
Double Bind is centered on the idea that any and every proposition has instability built into it; i.e. the idea that we, at any given time, occupy contradictory positions at once, yet given particular circumstances we are made to choose a position that will in some way antagonize past, present or future positionalities. Such double binds are found in already existing categories within which the conditions of knowledge and how we come to know the world are constructed. The double bind then makes evident the specific epistemes that our subjectivities are invested in, and the limitations that accompany every episteme.
