IS Projects is pleased to present two new editions in our artists’ books publishing series, Existent Books. Convergence by Michelle AM Miller is a durable recording of a fading memory, fixed in time with the reverie it inspired. It is equal parts family biography, scientific exposition, and abstract imagery contained within a touchable sculptural object. As Convergence carries us from oysters to auroras, we experience memory, time, place and the convergence of seemingly asynchronous events and ideas. Antillean Lacunae: Points of Departure by Onajide Shabaka, follows the artist’s path over the past several years through research on subsistence and industrial rice cultivation, and the culture developed around those doing the labor. The majority of the artist’s investigations have taken place in Suriname (South America) and coastal Georgia (Lowcountry). Both regions were heavily influenced by the agricultural knowledge of Africans, both those enslaved and maroons (who escaped the plantations for freedom).
