Of Illogics and Rhythms

On view January 31–February 11
Schafer Gallery, SFAI—Fort Mason Campus (Pier 2)

Join us on Friday, January 31, for the joint opening reception of Of Illogics and Rhythms, featuring the works of Ellen Carpenter, Karl Daum, Colin Fleck, and evan pettiglio, and the solo exhibition Eden, all the Butterflies Cried a Thousand Times by Mareiwa Miller.

The bodies of work represented in Of Illogics and Rhythms confront the logical instability of self, place, and memory. The personal identities we assign ourselves, the spaces we inhabit, and our memories are fallible sources. They converge and disintegrate in smooth oscillations like a continuous sine wave. Recognizing this instability isolates us, displaces us, and emphasizes the ephemerality of our memory. The work presented here engages with this instability in an attempt to question, process, or resolve these uncertainties.
