Kandis Williams produces large-scale black and white collages that track a deeply personal ongoing exploration of racial nationalism, authority, magic, and violence. Using collage as a deliberately abrasive metaphor for injustice, her repetitive and idiosyncratic creations—formed from specific incidents of sociological perplexities—are set against monochromatic gradients suggestive of the occurrence of these incidents over time. Williams implicates both herself and the audience in the intoxication of commodity-fetishism, dramatizing the mind’s struggle for truth in moral judgment.
Kandis Williams (b. 1985) has exhibited at SADE Gallery, Los Angeles, Night Gallery, Los Angeles, Venice Biennale 2015, Venice, Italy, The Underground Museum, Los Angeles, and Erratum Galerie, Berlin.
