Riding in a car, looking out the window
The car picks up speed.
A fleeting glimpse of a white plastic chair left in front of the pale blue house.
The evening sunlight hits the fence, it casts a shadow on the lawn,
Only a glimpse,
Mundane, but significant.

gallery no one is excited to present a group show by artists Clare Hu, Shelby Ragsdale, and Ting Yan Khor.

A place in-between, somewhere familiar yet foreign, momentary and quick. Why do these places linger in our minds? Artists Clare Hu, Shelby Ragsdale, and Ting Yan Khor investigate and challenge the operations of traditional landscape. ​Trying to Move a Sprinkler
Without Getting Wet explores the nostalgia and sentimentality entrenched in locations we have previously inhabited or imaginary spaces we desire to inhabit. Strategies of collaging, layering, documenting, and distortion intersect in interdisciplinary works consisting of photographs, prints, and textile. These works challenge what it means to be rooted in a place as opposed to wandering through.

Exhibition Date: October 13 – 29, 2017
