Sharp and Numb

May 25 - June 30 2017
Opening Reception: May 25, 7:30PM

Sharp and Numb presents a small sample of nearly a decade of Kelly Jazvac’s work with plastic refuse. The title points to the emotional extremes and bodily reactions we shift between when considering how plastic has reconfigured our relationship to objecthood, nature, and consumption. Taking discarded signage, plastics, and misprinted advertisements as her source material, Jazvac deconstructs and re-collages their original images and meanings to underscore their relationship to environmental violence/unchecked capitalism/imperialism/entitlement/colonialism/winner take all/bossiness/delusion/collusion/double speak/falsehood/general ridiculousness. Jazvac’s re-made forms evoke both the machines and bodies—not only human—that are implicated in these shards of evidence, while the resulting installation produces a broken diagram, or loop of entangled existences, aesthetics, agencies, and culpability.

Oasis

May 25-June 30 2017
Opening Reception: May 25, 7:30PM

Lin Xu’s Oasis is an exploration of memory, dreams, and the processes that shape the human brain through a delicate balance between choice and chance. Xu constructs her intimate sculptural objects through multiple stages of addition and subtraction, bringing together elements shaped by her hand with studio discards and found materials: decorative porcelain flowers and doll faces, or swirls of clay left from trimming thrown shapes on the potter’s wheel. Xu’s clay objects evoke cycles of re-birth, metamorphosis, and a constant state of transformation. Stemming from her research into neuroscience, Xu draws parallels between the physical characteristics and malleability of these clay objects, with the human mind’s capacity for memory; clay holds information and responds to shaping in ways that are both predictable and unexpected, and maintains a body that is at once fragile and resilient.
