APRIL 15 – MAY 15, 2020 | Curator: Shayna Cohn
|Time is measured in our exchanges. If we cannot be in and of the world and the body must remain at rest, it is the mind that moves in place. Within the confines of our homes is where “life begins …. enclosed, protected and warm …” (1), we see the things we have amassed and we see ourselves reflected in them. Our histories, our taste, proof of our material existence, and of the passing of time. And yet, when in isolation, new rituals manifest and we become our own mystic saviors. This exhibition examines the artists’ relationship with the places that we call home and the daydreams that emanate from that center point of our lives.
