Participating artists include Sam Falls, Jacob Kassay, N. Dash, Kyle Thurman and Joe Zorilla.
Time is transparent. We move through it unwittingly, conditioned by its constancy. It's passage is recorded on everything: obtaining, detaining, reflecting and detecting the subtle morbid dance of existence and material.
The work in this exhibition embraces the inevitable. The wrists acknowledge the object's empirical place in linear time. A place which is at no moment more complete, and at the end of which, awaits an unavoidable fate: that of its devolvement. Despite this material dissolution, the concept persists through time's weathering wash. The life of the object is to exist as we do, between two bookends, gathered up and let out.
