Sarah Applebaum. May 23rd – June 26th, 2009.
All pieces are priced individually for purchase. Please contact us for pricing.
Through installation, costume, and sculptural objects, Sarah Applebaum makes Receiver Gallery into a subconscious space. It is a hyper-textural hallucination, a waking dream, a dream-map environment where everything has meaning and yet meaning escapes definition.
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?
—George Bernard Shaw
Please join us on Saturday, May 23rd, in welcoming the artist and celebrating her latest project, 'Soft Core'. The artist will be in attendance and refreshments will be served. A forthcoming lecture date regarding the show by the artist will soon be announced.
The best thing about dreaming is the doorway to your subconscious that opens wide every night. Dreams don't make sense but they are filled with meaning. If you could perceive your dreams, your hallucinations in the waking world what would you see? If you could see a dream while awake what would you see? What would the material of those landscapes be? What would the markers be in a space where foreground and background can be indistinguishable? Who would inhabit it?
This show, and our 2009 arts calendar, is supported in part by Southern Exposure’s Alternative Exposure grant. Thank you SOEX!More photos on Flickr
