As part of the Doing/Thinking Residency at Wedge Projects, Flirting with Infinitudes presents wall hangings, sculptures, site-specific interventions, text, and public activations that fixate on the errant pleasures of handling materials, especially thermoplastics, in relation to craft-based processes and the duration of repetition.
Knotting. Wrapping. Coiling. The triangulation of these haptic choreographies become a point of departure for considering the grips and loose ends of physical, psychic, and emotional attachment. The enactment of knots, wrapping, and coiling over the course of the residency will accumulate within cycles of repetition, vacillating between anxious iteration and manic pleasure.
An opening reception will take place half way through the residency, followed by regular gallery hours, and a closing reception on Friday, October 5.
