Christina P. Day: Solid State
The debut solo exhibition by NAPOLEON member Christina P. Day
Day’s objects exist in between where they have been and where they appear to be. Her sculptures imply that objects can retain their past, broadcast from another era, and resume old conversations mid-sentence. This exhibition is a correspondence between surface and substance, person and place.
Opening First Friday, May 3rd
6pm – 10pm
319 N 11th Street, 2L
Exhibition Dates: 5.3.13 – 5.26.13
Gallery Hours: Saturdays and Sundays 2pm – 6pm or by appointment
As a continuation of our exhibition essay series, artist and poet Courtney Mandryk employs ekphrastic poetry in response to Day’s work. Ekphrastic poetry is a form of writing inspired by another artwork, a written interpretation of a piece of visual art. Artist and writer Courtney Mandryk penned three poems in response to a dialog she and Day shared about the development of the work in this exhibition.
