Exhibition Reception: Stoicheion

Cole Lu

In Stoicheion, New York-based artist Cole Lu examines established social hierarchies and their myth-making origins. "Stoicheion," the Greek title of Euclid's Elements and Aristoxenus's Elements of Harmonics, has held various meanings, including “the length of the shadow of a sundial,” “the stars or astral bodies as elements of fire,” or more commonly “the smallest parts of anything which stand in relation to one another.” Like a makeshift nursery from Ridley Scott's Raised by Wolves, Cole Lu's dodecahedron shelter presents the viewer with an otherworldly space to consider the fundaments of "humanity."
