Join us for the opening of SLOW FIXTURES!
February 1st, 2019
EXTRA Projects at basic studios
Kat Gu and Jo Geczy share an impulse to keep quiet the personal narratives that run beneath each of their work. The works they have presented here are an attempt at changing or redistributing the balance of these narratives that are starting points for their respective art making. Can the private and personal be diffused in a space? In objects? Can it be registered as an ambiance? In questioning how a space might function like memory, editing and maintaining as it evolves, the artists consider how the gallery space collides with these remembered narratives and how the disorientation of/from one might engender a shift in the other.
Additionally, the artists have planned a meal for 16 guests, which will be open to public reservations until the venue is at capacity. The meal will be served on February 15th within the gallery among sculptures created for the installation. In sharing a meal, the artists hope to press on the tension between public and private space in art making, and to expand the viewer’s interaction with the narratives and forms at play. The vegetarian menu will consist of three courses inspired by the work. Around the dinner table, we might find ways of generating new relations and nourishing dialogue.
Seating is extremely limited, Please RSVP:
