The Syllogy group exhibition at Seattle’s Veronica project space, opened July 22 and is running to September 16.
Curated by manuel arturo abreu, the show includes works by themselves, as well as Winslow Laroche, Adriana Ramić, Aria Dean. In a preview feature about the exhibition, AQNB contributor Minh Nguyen notes that the curatorial premise “observes a through line among the practices of the artists that play with genre disorientation, blurred boundaries, and ambiguity as a response to the politics of language,” as abreu explains, “I’m interested less in illegibility as a strategy and more in it as a dance, a sidestep.”
The object-oriented show is light and minimal, including hundreds of Ramić’s index cards that reference species classification and are lined against the wall. The press release includes a text by Gaelynn Lea, with an excerpt reading:
“We pulled the weeds out til the dawn
Nearly too tired to carry on
Someday we’ll linger in the sun.” **
