Gonzalez’s use of poetry as a foundation takes her work somewhere new. More than any other form of writing, poetry destabilizes its own medium. It is a tool for weirding and reinventing language. It is ritualistic, incantatory. There is logical depth to poetry that can be deceptive, that can pull the rug from under you. This kind of upending is true of Gonzalez’s functional sculptures. The poem translated for this show reads: “We are, all of us, edgeless, / and senseless.”
