Please join us for the brunch launch of Pillowtops & Beyond, by Carly Mandel and published by HQ Objective.
Between moments of sleep and wake, dream and reality, pattern languages spoken by and understood by the human perception are cross-wired and re-presented. In the repetition and nascence of Carly Mandel’s physical manifestations of objects in a disillusioned exhibition space, we are invited to explore a narrative locked in the interplay of subversion and confluence. Walls partially unfinished, and walls crumbling, it could be thought that an act of entropy or a wind of confusion were responsible for creating the vacant displays in Pillowtops; speaking clearly, and in intimate whispers, but selling to no one.
Five contributors expand upon and carry the world created by Mandel. Within you will find notes on a water heater system, floral arrangements, stale books, real material, a letter, everyday consumerism, and a pragmatic body politics, among other things.
July 23rd time TBD
