No Gains on Sacrifice @ Sorry Archive, March 2 – 7

2 March 2016

Sorry Archive will present group exhibition NO GAINS ON SACRIFICE at New York’s Spring/Break Art Show, opening March 2 and running March 7.

Sorry Archive is a series of exhibitions run by alter egos, which disintegrates and re-congeals after each show as a way to demolish and create continuously aesthetics, styles and strategies. It is maintained by Claire Mirocha and Vanessa Thill.

NO GAINS ON SACRIFICE presents works by artists, Wyatt Burns, Frank Castanien, Constantin Hartenstein, Nicholas Sullivan and Siebren Versteeg. Amongst the works in the space then, the show will “thrust the unsubstantiated persona of poet Lewis Freedman” into the midst, “where he will conduct the viewer through his bewildering but incisive encounter with the works, as seen through his mind’s eye”.

There will be texts works by Freedman in the space.

The press release continues to describe that the exhibition will embody the strategy of the poet, who attempts to record the first letter of each word he hears spoken aloud in conversation in frantic real time, in a desire to “recuperate deficit” and catch .

It is a fascinating text to a show that reads unclear -until seen -as to whether the work in the space will embody the strategy this exhibition is adopting, and almost try and catch themselves in their own mnemonic (mark) making, or whether the embodying will be left over to the occasion and atmosphere held between the works of NO GAINS ON SACRIFICE as a thing in itself.
