What: Stones, objects and ideas are equally subjected to the passage of time. Tongue Stones explores legacies past, present and future through a constellation of histories and imminent possibilities.
The works in this exhibition by David Horvitz, Soda_Jerk, Joachim Koester, Elise Rasmussen and Julia Weist include experiments in research, revision, reenactment, sampling, circulation, documentation and reanimation.
Their diverse projects reflect on the after-lives and possible futures of artists, magicians, cosmic philosophers, jazz composers, overgrown sites, occult rituals, artworks, search terms, instructions, criticism, paperback romance novels, dust, sea glass, Wikipedia, video, science fiction, hip hop and honey lotus trees.
In each instance, preservation is contingent upon current attention spans, as the act of remembering the past is inevitably bound to the act of imagining the future.
Tongue Stones will be accompanied by a forthcoming, fully-illustrated publication featuring essays by Clara Halpern, Laura McLean-Ferris, and individual artist projects.
