SITElines.2018 artist Curtis Talwst Santiago (b. 1979 Toronto, Canada; lives in Lisbon) Over the last several years, Santiago has been creating dioramas inside of ring boxes. Inside of these small spaces, Santiago constructs environments that are intimate and performative; the artist has carried them around to show visitors one on one, opening up a scene in the space of his hand. These mobile enclosures are a way of transporting carefully constructed scenes that include specific people, places, and histories.  For Casa tomada, one gallery contains a glass house in which a selection of 51 dioramas appear together in a singular installation.
