Part of the 2013–2014 Fellows Presentation Series
Through her work, Pamela Lins contemplates the social, the political, and the historical by constructing situations inquisitive and equivocal to sculpture and the making of it. Her Radcliffe project is based on a photo, circa 1931, of a classroom for one of the basic courses at the Russian state art and technical school Vkhutemas. The classroom is filled with architectural models, some legible, others just shadowy forms without much detail. By remaking these models and using them in her work, Lins will continue the process of researching certain forms and dislodging them from their modernist context.
