November 5th - December 2nd, 2016

Of childhood, sexuality, process, and corporeality—residues index activity. The exhibition features works that are linked not by textual but by textural references to hybrid materialities and states of becoming. A shower pumps through a beige perfumed liquid derived from measurements of the artist's heartbeat. On the floor, a slip cast of an egg carton mimics the paradoxical strength of the thin, rounded shells it once protected. A rust-colored paper that takes its hues from the evaporation of coagulated household substances now wrinkles as it extends from the ceiling to floor, joining a phosphorescent spill of soap, sugar, gel, and figs. On the wall, a geometric form hosts a stretched fabric infused with resin and loosely associated object memories.
