Be Dammed 

Be Dammed is a research-based project by artist Carolina Caycedo that explores concepts of flow and containment, investigating correlations between the mechanisms of social control and the unethical aspects of public works infrastructural projects including large water dams and reservoirs. Be Dammed encompasses sculpture, photography, video and a performance series, and reflects the artist’s ongoing query into the development of mega-infrastructures over natural and social landscapes. Within this body of work, Caycedo conceptually embeds an analogous relationship of tactical constraint and crowd control, as exercised by police and military over group protests and public demonstrations.

Carolina Caycedo’s Artist Lab Residency at 18th Street Arts Center and all associated events have been made possible through the generous support of the Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division, Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
