COOP Collective at NAPOLEON: Fields of Resonance

In the month of January, NAPOLEON will be participating in a month-long gallery exchange with members of the curatorial collective, COOP from Nashville, TN. COOP and NAPOLEON are pleased to present:

Fields of Resonance

An exhibition by members of COOP, Nashville, TN hosted by NAPOLEON

Alex Blau

Paul Collins

Kristi Hargrove

Jana Harper

Ron Lambert

Jonathan Rattner

Our present is often said to represent an age of abstraction and dematerialization, a time in which the virtual trumps the sensible. This exhibition explores the delicate line between the visible and the intangible, between what is present and what is absent, drawing attention to both the remains and continued promises of the sensory world. As they trace various physical and imaginary resonances of the real, the works of this show evoke images and emotions that recall things past as much as they cause the viewer to speculate about things to come.

Jonathan Rattner’s video explores themes of melancholy, joy, and the end of time through a series of short, visual haikus. Kristi Hargrove’s photographs of domestic interiors document the accumulation of time. Through her work with paint overspray, Alex Blau physically explores the notions of lost treasures and pretty residue. In Night View From the Hideout Paul Collins examines presence and absence through a veil of secrecy. Jana Harper’s constellation of collages addresses the shadow, the glitch, and the removed. And Ron Lambert’s site specific installation navigates a conversation between beauty, failure, and attempted repair.
