CONTENTS AND INDEX presents a diverse selection of works by Los Angeles based artist Amanda Ross-Ho. Spanning a broad time period, some works on view have never before been exhibited. Recontextualized from their original chronology into a new presentation, they provide a unique perspective on the artist’s multifaceted practice.
For more than a decade, Ross-Ho has cultivated a reflexive practice that directly engages ecologies of the human experience in relation to sites of production and display. Looking at the space of the studio with a forensic gaze, she performs meticulous theatrical reenactments of authentic activity, and systematically amplifies humble artifacts into monuments. Call and response, shifts in scale, and the insistent repetition of forms and images lend to an increasingly massive archive of work that is at once analytic, theatrical, and diaristic.
