    Claudia Pagès’s work circulates word, body, music, and movement in multiple directions, tracing the continuity of logistics systems (like shipping and transport) alongside legal language and proceedings in hypnotic video installations. Pagès refers to the subjects of her work as “containment architectures,” upholding power through the flow of goods and capital. Pagès’s new work for SculptureCenter is a video installation sited between two locations that mark the “birth of bureaucracy” – ancient caves tallied with trade markers and the paper's entrance to Europe through the Silk Route.
