When faced with unknowable realities, we contrive epistemes and narratives that become useful fictions, helping to strain the world into our understanding. Shubigi Rao’s new works on paper concern themselves with the consequence of these fictions, through the act of drawing and her characteristic play with language. Genealogies become lies, information shown as partisan, categories revealed as arbitrary. This catalogue includes new writing created in conversation with the artist, by Jason Wee, Dana Lam, and Amanda Lee Koe.
