Description

America's complicated relationship with Cuba has engendered a deep curiosity about the country and its culture. Using the concept of the horizon as a symbol of longing, containment, and separation, this book features three essays on the topics of "Internal Landscapes," "Abstracting History," and "Domestic Anxieties." The works featured in the book include Yoan Capote's massive Island (see-escape), which incorporates nails and half a million fishhooks and Teresita Fernandez' haunting ceramic glazed Fire (America) 5. Taken together, these essays, and the diverse and mesmerizing works that anchor them, generate an important dialogue between Cuba's aesthetic heritage and its contemporary social and cultural geography.
