Opening Thursday October 22nd 6-9 pm. Performance at 7 pm.

“Soon, something will happen, certain things will merge, certain appearances will coalesce with figures, and music will be made, compositions denied, abstractions pursued as poetry. Dialogues pursued as the overtone of an anonymous woman.

Pursued as the artwork of a weary language.

As the stab through a leather belt, and its impossible scream. As the artwork of fragility. The fragility of nature. A motorcycle. The incapacity of reason. The forceful attempt to say what you are saying.

Here, under broken glass, and formal elements of otherwise improvised geometries, some forever, not for better, we will bear the strength of a necessary ambiguity in art. A necessary ash upon our reasons.”

(Y) 1999

Friends and timeless collaborators Amir Mogharabi (b. 1982) and Jeffrey Perkins (b. 1945) bring spontaneity, and a coincidental eye for movement and form, together to exhibit works that retrace, reflect, embrace, and neglect their own history; neglect their relationship to ‘the ethereality of an otherwise performative, and impossible to represent,’ practice.
