Inspired by Wave Hill’s Aquatic Garden pool and tropical plants, Shoshanna Weinberger’s installation treats the garden as a metaphorical space to explore the complexity of her Caribbean-American heritage. The artist uses a grouping of abstracted, anthropomorphic sculptures made of laser-cut, two-sided, acrylic mirrors to draw associations between plants and the human body. The work features parts of Weinberger's signature muse “Strangefruit,” a recurring figure that represents her own body and other, marginalized, female bodies. These hybrid, plant-human forms reflect the challenges of seeking refuge in a tropical landscape and simultaneously struggling to blend in.
