Jeremiah Jones: Pleasure in the Domestic

@ ROOMS Gallery

1835 S Halsted St, Chicago

Opening Friday, May 9th, from 8PM - 10PM

On view through Saturday, May 17th

ROOMS Gallery & ACRE present Pleasure in the Domestic, a group show featuring ACRE resident Jeremiah Jones. Jeremiah Jones will be joined by ROOMS and Jeremy Handrup for a night of photography, performance and new mixed media works. In this exhibition of new mixed media video installations Jeremiah Jones creates objects which have the affect of art environments; incorporating animation, projected light, video, painting and assemblage. Jeremiah’s experimental video work utilizes expansive research, projections, TV’s, cars, animations, and deconstructed electronics, which seductively play with light, color and image. Through the exploration of social landscapes, he creates works, which observe and adore rather than critique the complexities of relationships mediated by images. In the production of these works, Jeremiah brings to bear contemporary systems and mythologies, falling in love with the heart of society’s real unrealities.

Jeremiah Jones will be joined by ROOMS and Jeremy Handrup. ROOMS, husband/wife duo, will continue their series exploring ritualistic performance installations in the Vitrine of ROOMS Gallery. Jeremy Handrup will present Configurations, a portrait series, which engages representations of domesticity across a broad range of rich visual conventions and references including: the cinematic, the televisual, and the painterly.

Pleasure in the Domestic has been curated in collaboration with Art Wrker, Christian Cruz. ROOMS Gallery is the studio in which Todd Frugia & Marrakesh perform, create and expand their work. Todd Frugia & Marrakesh strive to display their work with outside artists with a similar conceptual process and practice.
