“Tissue” Exhibition


poster for “Tissue” Exhibition

This event has ended.

set really a setting writing in blank

the spaces relate

to each other they try the thing you find in the t-shirt

and leave, your own

a self alone attuned to

the skin wet spot through your clothes

bye at

your fail a flag with the rising destroy

A.K. Burns (b. 1975, Capitola, CA) is an interdisciplinary artist focused on the body as a site of social and political agitation, who uses video, installation, sculpture, drawing and collaboration to query the space between materiality and language.

Dachi Cole (b. Oxon Hill , Maryland) is a mixed media artist. Her work uses collage, sculpture, sound, illustration, and textile as a tool or tuning fork to form and unravel the vast subconscious plane. Inspired often by the talismans of childhood, she uses found objects and textile to inform what she calls the crossover: How we get to one end from the other. Dachi is a member of the HDYSIA? collective and has exhibited in group exhibitions with the collective in NO HUMANS INVOLVED at the Witte de With: Center for Contemporary Art, in Rotterdam, Netherlands (2015) and The 2014 Whitney Biennial with Good Stock on the Dimension Floor: An Opera. Dachi has recently exhibited at Condo NY, Lomex with Arcadia Misa (2018), and MoltherCulture (2017). She currently lives and works in New York City.

Hannah Levy (b. 1991, New York) excerpts and liberates everyday forms often associated with body interface—handrails, produce, garments, industrial packaging, medical devices—from their usual contexts and functions, to make that which is familiar, nearly to the point of invisibility, deeply strange and magnetic. Recent exhibitions include C L E A R I N G, New York (solo), and Mother’s Tankstation, Dublin, Ireland (solo), The Yuz Museum, Shanghai, CN, David Zwirner, New York, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, DK, SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah (all 2018), MoMA PS1, New York, the Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt, , Palais de Tokyo, Paris, and the Museum Für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (all 2017).

Linnéa Sjöberg’s (b. 1983, Strömsund, Sweden) recent projects can be described as performative research, embodying the subject of her interest to the point where no distinction can be made between her work and her persona. The remnants of her actions is documented through text, printed matters, sculptures and textile works. Recent exhibitions include Athens Biennale, Athens, GR, Art in a Synthetic Age, Moderna Museet, Stockholm (both 2018), and Jag har spytt tusen år av ord, Belenius, Stockholm (solo, 2017).
