JOY AND MISERY
OCTOBER 25, 2008 - NOVEMBER 22, 2008
CENTER FOR TACTICAL MAGIC
Joy and Misery are emotions that exist together, both in contradiction and collaboration. The work in this exhibition creates a space in which these dualities simultaneously emerge. It poses questions, raises possibilities, and meditates on the current state of contemporary events and individual views.
The exhibition subconsciously addresses the human ability to manifest and regard how opposites create a contradictory understanding of the center of existence, and questions what that center is.
"Whenever one moves out of the transcendent one comes into a field of opposites. One of the problems of life is to live with the realization of both terms, that is to say, I know the center and I know that good and evil are simply temporal aberrations, and that in God's view, there is no difference."
