JANUARY 11 - MARCH 4
This work is about the psychology and comedy of absence, love, and longing. Blobby forms, gender colors and scrawled text pair up and open space for thinking feeling and feeling thought. Together, they seek to upend normative good sense – about what is right, or good or happy - in order to find something more complex, gnarly, and real.
