Samara Golden: Upstairs at Steve’s

Fabric Workshop and Museum / Philadelphia / Art

“Samara Golden masterfully toys with reality through her experimentation with optical techniques and materials,” says Christina Vasallo, director of the Fabric Workshop and Museum. Devised over the course of a year’s residency, Golden’s immersive installation, Upstairs at Steve’s, was completed remotely following shelter-in-place orders. It’s a post-disaster seaside scene: strewn household objects lie on the ground of a massive space; turquoise mirrors mimic the ocean, creating a feeling of immense depth. Golden is conjuring the intricacies of consciousness, as well as socioeconomic complexities. —E.C.
