    Like Smoke at Equity Gallery NYC

    LIKE SMOKE
    November 4 - December 4, 2016
    Curated by Osman Can Yerebakan

    Equity Gallery, 245 Broome Street, NY, NY 10002
    Opening Reception: Friday, November 4, 6-8pm
    Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Saturday, 12-6pm, and by appointment

    Equity Gallery is pleased to present Like Smoke, a group exhibition curated by Osman Can Yerebakan and featuring works by Dan Fairbanks, Carl Ferrero, Daniel Greenfield-Campoverde, Hermes Payrhuber, Eric Rhein, Gwen Shockey, Pacifico Silano, Quay Quinn Wolf, Lindsey Wolkowicz, and Jade Yumang.

    Adopting its title from an important component of Jean Genet’s only directorial effort, Un Chant d’Amour, the exhibition examines corporeality under the circumstance of physical absence. In Genet’s 1950 black and white silent film, two prisoners, also lovers, are confined to adjacent cells under the watch of an abusive guard who scrutinizes and suppresses their relationship and their struggles for physical contact. Eventually, the two prisoners embark on a dream-like hallucinatory encounter in which the smoke one blows to the other through the hole dividing them substitutes for their missing bodies.

    The ten artists in this exhibition depict ways tactile surfaces and abstract imagery stand out to manifest carnality and figurative representation when the physical body is detached. Employing various mediums, each artist conveys earnest and intimate human feelings of longing beyond the body and its representative radiance, exceeding the limits of tangible presence toward meditative states. Furthermore, commenting on constant restraint and preconceptions queer identity face, the exhibition studies the portrayal of queer experience as a marginalized matter in society. Rendered into testimonies that are visually placid yet assertive in conveyance, the exhibition problematizes mainstream representations of queer aesthetics, challenging fixed notions and representations on mutual contact and solidarity.

    Raising questions on body politics and the systematic oppression of the body as an objectified entity, the artists in the exhibition dismantle and redefine patterns for self-expression. On the other hand, analyzing the paradox of absent body, works selected approach the subject matter as a psychological argument in which the artists delve into depths of their subconsciouses to ponder self-discovery while facing a physical and mental void.

    "Dis·sec·tion"
    noun: dissection; plural noun: dissections
    1. the action of dissecting a body or plant to study its internal parts.
    ○ synonyms: cutting up/open, dismemberment;
    2. very detailed analysis of a text or idea.

    To create a successful work of art an artist must constantly be dissecting ideas and aesthetics. What works well in one piece or situation may not in the next so they must cut, edit and begin anew with the remnants of what was once created. Dissection features work by Joan Harmon, Kristen Tordella-Williams and Lindsey Wolkowicz. Each piece investigates either the dissection of an idea or an aesthetic element, and the artists themselves exhibit the ability to delve into their concepts to create a detailed analysis of their ideas through their art practice.

    Joan Harmon, Kristen Tordella-Williams and Lindsey Wolkowicz are members of Art Shape Mammoth; a non-profit organization cultivating arts research, education, and dialogue by supporting the development of artists and by connecting them with new communities.
