Monday: Juliet Fang's opening

"the experience of no real existence…" - Juliet Fang

Existence can be overrated. Often we search for those transcending moments. Through art, film, music, spacing-out in group conversations, waiting for for laundry to finish. Everyday existence can be complicated. Multi-tasking is frequently required. It's no wonder we  involuntarily retreat into our lumpy brains.

Juliet Fang opens a space similar to the mind's landscape. It's not bulgy and pinkish like the brain. It's inconsistent with shifting relationships between objects. Dynamic tensions pulling on the negative spaces. Traditional foreground, middle ground, back ground is no longer grounded. Fang deconstructs and reinterprets the physics of space. Where does the work start and end? Are you also an object in the exhibition? Within her aesthetic there is a darkness. An uneasy twinge in the atmosphere. Echoing the feeling of loss and fragility of existence.

The Monday night opening is well suited to these thoughts. The dulling sense that the weekend has slipped away and you are left with daily grind of monday to friday. When does existence start and stop?
