The show includes artists San Francisco-based Koak, Los Angeles-based Mattea Perrotta and Chicago-based Mindy Rose Schwartz. The press release shares little information about the themes of the exhibition. What information is given is presented in the form of a poem:
“The body is a depletive metaphor
Exposing a sudden, physical rift
Unearthing decay in place
Slowing the process of loss,
Leaking that of an emotional drain.”
Works on paper, sculpture, and painting comprise the exhibition.
See the Alter Space website for more details.**
