Curtis Talwst Santiago

STUDIO LHOOQ designed and photographed Curtis Talwst Santiago's exhibition Market Value at Lord Ludd.

Though instantly recognizable, the tiny sculptures of Curtis Talwst Santiago defy easy categorization. In reclaimed ring boxes, he crafts miniature scenes with an eye for detail that confounds the mind—scenes that collapse historical tropes with contemporary memes, forgotten narratives with current events. The son of Trinidadian emigrés to Canada, Talwst pays particular heed to racism and colonialism, whose effects in the present moment he traces throughout history and diaspora.
