Nevermind the Gap - featuring work by Ben Hirschkoff, Matt Mitros, Jodi Rockwell, Toi Sennhauser, and Jason Wood - will highlight the long, narrow, and deteriorating architectural qualities of SOIL Gallery by presenting work that bridges the narrowest dimensional distance of the gallery, addresses cracks in the floor, and explores the ceiling. More specifically, as the viewer navigates from the front to the rear of the space they will find themselves being asked to explore the otherwise “overlooked” areas of the gallery.
In the backspace: Progression features recent self-portraits by Shaun Kardinal.
In a series titled Look at Me, Kardinal photographs himself performing daily actions in his bathroom. Through these images he has captured his unique experience of common, ubiquitous moments which are often overlooked. In Go On, I'm Listening and Double-Blind Kardinal documents his voyeuristic side, inverting the very nature of the affairs. Inflection, a collaboration between Kardinal and Ariana Page Russell, allows the two artists the opportunity to bare their individual responses to a shared trauma.
