Ike Floor: Earthly Unmending

@ Happy Gallery Chicago

902 N California Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Saturday, November 16th, from 6PM - 10PM

On view through Monday, December 16th

Join us for the opening reception of Ike Floor’s Solo Exhibition “Earthly Unmending” Saturday November 16th at 6pm. The show runs from November 16th-December 16th.

If it is made here, then is it of Earth? And if it is not entirely made of earth, then is it made of us? Or is everything pooled from greater universes into our own?

Family showed me how to crochet, and I am compelled to share in this greater world of textile makers.

By using alternative materials, like clay and thermoplastic, I can explore and augment fundamental stitches and forms in subversive ways. My desire to do so comes from a queer place – an attempt to manifest the fringe that I feel inside.

Big thanks to Happy Gallery and to Liz McCarthy/GnarWare Workshop. Also gratitude to Liz Born/Hoofprint, Gildelgar Sanchez/Marqueria Gildelgar, and so many others.

Ike Floor is a maker in Chicago.
