When the Painter sat on the chair, he was not sitting on the chair. His body, each molecule encased in an electron cloud, levitated imperceptibly above the surface of the chair, lifted by the interactions between his electrons and the chair's. In this discursive space, between chair and the Painter's ass, subtleties of repulsion and attraction wear away at the surface. The chair and the ass record a history of shifts in proximity, mediated by styles and memory. For Apples & Orangements, Dana Dart-McLean and Christopher Garrett show painting, sculpture, and ceramics in an installation of furniture from Mondo Cane, as a collaborative meditation on how decor plays with proximity, absence, and interiority.
Please join us at Mondo Cane for the opening reception of Apples & Orangements on Friday, January 11th from 6-9PM.
