clementines+fingernails: Root

@ Chicago Art Department

1932 South Halsted #100, 
Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, December 13th, from 6PM - 10PM

On view through Monday, December 16th

Root considers a whole much greater than the sum of its parts, a precarious whole achieved by fortune, chance, subtle evocation. An occurrence of elements that, with one defining swoosh, fall for a moment into delicate balance. Tenuous relationships that allow for so much more than the platform they create.

With fluid intent, we toy with the happenstance, investigating structures of relationship, possibilities for future, present, and past. This is or was the moon, the birth of the universe, the playground encounter, the tenure of a marriage of elements, the impermanent. It defines a lifetime, is bigger than we, but like all else, is only temporary.

Opening Reception Friday, December 13th, 2013 from 6-9pm.
