Leticia Bajuyo Artist Talk

To close out her exhibitions Tethered Oscillator in the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery and Tethered in the Thompson Loggia artist Leticia Bajuyo will give a virtual artist talk to share her artistic processes and concepts for the shows. 

Both exhibitions respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. In Tethered, the artist has drawn 20th-century objects of communication and connectedness. These graphite on wood drawings visualize social distance and explore how it is that we can stay connected or be tethered together. Inside the Haggerty Gallery, Tethered Oscillator is made up of two large, sculpted horns, woven together with thousands of shiny discs. The wall works and sculptures encircle two black pedestals, which each contain a theremin, an electric instrument that can be played without physical contact. The design for the installation was inspired by the concept of a coupled oscillator, in which springs connect two masses in a tug-of-war that continuously searches for a return to equilibrium. To achieve the full effect of a cacophony of sound, two people need to play the instruments while six-feet apart.
