Meet the Artists Opening Reception: Jia-Jen Lin, R. Eric McMaster, and Video Exhibition Guest Curated by Ombretta Agró Andruff

Date & Time:


Locust Projects
3852 North Miami Avenue
Miami, FL 33127

Join Locust Projects in celebrating the opening of three new exhibitions on view April 22 - June 18.

Featuring a new immersive installation by Taiwanese-American artist Jia-Jen Lin; a two-channel video installation by Austin-based artist R. Eric McMaster; and a video series guest curated by Italian-born, Miami-based curator and climate activist Ombretta Agró Andruff. Together, all relate to adaptation, climate change, sea-level rise, the ocean, and our relationship to Mother Earth - no better day to celebrate the opening than on Earth Day 2022!

Treading on Thin Ice contemplates human conditions under progressive catastrophes resulting from social issues and climate change. By employing the concept of landscape as traces of human history as a battleground and an extension of the human body, Jia-Jen Lin presents a post-landscape where nature, human activities, and materiality intersect. 

Drift is a two-channel video installation featuring two musicians playing an original, reactive composition as they are set adrift in the ocean on separate, custom-built rafts. As the musicians physically drift away from one another, their ability to hear each other diminishes causing the duet to slowly fall apart.

The Sea was walking the earth with a heavy heel is the fifth in a series of guest curated video exhibitions in Locust Projects’ Screening Room that launched in fall 2019. Guest curated by Ombretta Agró Andruff, ARTSail Residency and Research Initiative, the exhibition features videos by Ursula Biemann, Atul Bhalla, Tania Candiani, Shezad Dawood, and Miguel Sbastida. Water, in all its beauty, might, and potential menace, is what connects the five videos presented in the exhibition.
