explores history and the distinctive ways in which shared social experiences influence the individual. Drawing on Carl Jung’s assertion that a person’s behavior and thoughts maintain an unconscious link with the past and its archetypes, Capote delves into his Cuban nationality while speaking to a universal experience. In these recent works, he investigates cultural symbols—exposing their fissures, reveling in their inherent contradictions, and imploring the viewer to reconsider the acceptance of history as absolute truth.
