This work comes from a series of three sculptures Michael Joo created for the exhibition Sensory Meridian at Kavi Gupta in 2021. The sculptures are of disincarnate body parts, alchemized from scans of historical works in the Smithsonian Archives. All One Thing features the fist of Abraham Lincoln, copied from a form originally cast on the campaign trail. What’s missing is the broom handle Lincoln had to grip in order to make a fist, after reportedly shaking so many hands that he lost muscle control. The work evolved out of Joo thinking about representation, transmission, and transformation. What, and who, gets represented in art and science and history? What information is being transmitted, and how—and how to modes of transmission affect who ultimately receives and understands that information? How are meaning and materials transformed, and how does their transformation affect representation and the transmission of information?
