About the exhibition
A ceramic figure balances an ambiguous light green orb on its shoulders. Another fleshy nondescript form vibrates with the colorful markings of its maker atop a sea of vibrant green. Bodies amass, radiating energy, unable to contain the currents of their existence. What is this force? Oozing with life, yet bearing the weight of it. Oh, to be a body in the world.
