Itatani/Kasen/Coast: The Gift of Broken Tracking Devices: Thinking with Our Hands

January 25, 2014 - March 9, 2014

Saturdays & Sundays, 1-5pm Audible Gallery at ESS, 5925 N Ravenswood

In The Gift of Broken Tracking Devices: Thinking with Our Hands, a collaborative exhibition of works on paper, artists Judith A. Kasen and Michiko Itatani employ many experimental techniques—monotype, origami, fingerpainting—in a raw, intuitive exploration of how a collaborator’s work can serve as a mirror to one’s own. The result is a varied collection that addresses “wonderment and discovery in our daily life: hidden unknowns, desire for connection, search and journey, time/space and the awe of expanse, void, and silence.” Chicago-based experimental sound artist MT Coast has composed a companion audio component, and will perform a special live set at the opening reception on February 7th.

Curated by Lou Mallozzi.

GALLERY HOURS: Saturday & Sunday, 1pm–5pm
