In Implicit Borders: a cartography of free will, opening on July 13 at Catinca Tabacaru Gallery, Swiss-born artist Capucine Gros explores how geographical bias permeates body and mind, dauntingly limiting anyone and everyone’s global mobility and consciousness.

Gros traces the symptoms that are embedded in our existence but particularly noticeable in the peculiar strategies (some) humans invented to own the Earth and to quantify human lives: borders, nations, visas, G.D.P., and media 1 attention. The side-effects are indiscriminate, seen far and wide: from a migrant’s interdiction to cross an imaginary line to the common (mis)conceptions of one’s place in the world.

About the artist: Capucine Gros is a Switzerland-born artist who grew up in France and China. She moved to the United States in 2007 to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design where she received a BFA in Painting and New Media Art. She now lives and works in New York. Capucine has completed projects breaching in and out of the art world, from screen-printing workshops in public schools in Savannah, GA, to year-long performances recording her interactions with others as well as life-long paintings or annual hand-made books. She is currently completing a 199-day performance wearing one shirt for every country in the world, each screen-printed with that country’s shape, from March 20, 2017 to October 4, 2017. This May she was invited to premiere this work as a large-scale installation during the Unfinished Festival in Bucharest.
