Press Release



Made with clogged drains, broken legs, earthen strands, muddy bows, scraped elbows, tiled feet, drooling lips, and unflushed fish, the viscerally integrated works are tethered between virtual and raw-material mediums as each artist uniquely performs the spaces and times their bodies (of work) take-up. Strung-out along the limits of familiar objects and ordinary encounters, the works collectively but independently unfurl tendrilled connections between subversive forms of intimacy, physicality, memory, affinity, and economy.

Recontextualizing ‘everyday' interactions with items, furnitures, images, screens, trinkets, skins, figments, tangles, tools, morsels and other abeyant entities that congeal or contract as soon as someone looks (away), the exhibition asks how bodies make-room for objects through desire and affection—through taste. But it also asks how conditioned desires, affections, and tastes for objects make-room for (specific types of) bodies. When desire is reduced to metaphors of dis/taste, eating, and consumption, are exchanges with art objects molded in terms of the entrailed insides and outsides of a body’s relation to digestible—bite-sized—edible matter?

Recording or uncutting umbilical ties within and between any single piece, the artworks demonstrate alternatives to devouring the object (eating the other). Against this consumerist construction of desire, a different kind of bodily exchange occurs through liminal, limbinal works with tender, tendered extremities: jutting, tying, leaking, sagging. No inners and no outers, no subjects and no objects, no heres and no theres…. It is difficult to say where one work begins and the other ends…. Only a tenderness, a vulnerability, remains….

But this is not a tenderness that yields or gives-way. This tendered tendril tenderness reaches, extends, and seeks-out, sorely exposing itself to every risk in order to make-contact with an other. To find you.

An offering, a tendered limb.

A tendril clasp, a tender limb.
