April 10, 2015 to April 24, 2015 Saturdays from 12-4 PM
Can you tell distinguish an object from a thing? What predisposed ideologies or thoughts lead us to these conclusions or judgments? Through tapping into our natural and synthetic ecologies, Mitch Shiles presents a visually saturated examination of our assertions as humans with non-human forms. Shiles creates polychromatic sculptures using materials from chopsticks and clay to paper and porn. These materials interact in various combinations, questioning their typical associations, and at the same time revealing unconscious tendencies we innately hold as humans.
