The my fossil, my echo, my excess, my scrap group exhibition at New York’s MX Gallery opened July 20 and is running to August 10.
Curated by Gabrielle Jensen and Julia Lee, the show includes work by Cristine Brache, Isabel Legate, Carmen Neely, Kayode Ojo, and Patrice Renee Washington. The press release reads in four paragraphs, one for each part of the title, mapping out the relationship between the works in the context of ‘Fossilization anxiety,’ ‘The echo [as] an interruption of presence,’ ‘Excess [as] an ecstatic surrender to unknowing,’ and “The survivor of mutilated material, the scrap refuses to perform a whole.’
The works vary in medium, scale and approach to the curatorial premise but each respond to and explore the space of proliferation, fragmentation, the relic and the discarded. **
