Exploring the spaces between states of being, the exhibition traces the cyclical and vernacular places between appearance and disappearance, presence and absence, construction and deconstruction. Each work questions the currency of permanence. Moving between and within, a new kind of relic is realized, one that is both past and present, confined only to the metamorphic. Featuring works by Mary Grisey,  Faye Mullen, Jérôme Nadeau, and Deborah Wang. Curated by Noa Bronstein.
