“Be Dammed” is a research-based project by artist Carolina Caycedo that explores concepts of flow and containment, investigating correlations between the mechanisms of social control and the unethical aspects of public works infrastructural projects including large water dams and reservoirs. “Be Dammed,” which includes a performance series in addition to the objects and images on view in the gallery, reflects the artist’s ongoing interest in the effects of mega-infrastructure on nature and people.
