Caleb MacKenzie-Margulies (b. 1992, Malden, MA) works with photography and music, and is particularly interested in paper, reproduction, mass production, and individuality. He uses quotidian objects and photographs as diaristic, autobiographical indexes, and includes the conditions of his work’s production inside of its prescriptive frame. His work unmoors its audience from the certainty that images exist in a plane separate from themselves, and challenges viewers to take part in its existence. He presents the mundanity, hysteria, failure, and desperation of trying to make art openly in his work. He is currently an MFA Candidate at UIC (2022).
