“Augmented Reality”
Featuring Susi Brister, Kris Pierce, Randy Bolton, Frank Benson, Nancy de Holl, and Yoonmi Nam.

This exhibition is a critical look at digital escapism and current control techniques of our ongoing spectacular society. Through a variety of perspectives, we explore the filters we apply to our “real” world and ones applied for us. The selected works examine desire, status, the currency of perceived experience, histories of illusions as inherent to nature and human interest, and the debris of a day to day life specifically lives mediated and lived through screens.

 

 

“Echo and Narcissus”
Featuring Chris Sauter

A 2014-2015 Blue Star Contemporary Berlin Resident, Chris Sauter’s new exhibition “Echo and Narcissus” is inspired by his time in Berlin and current events. While in Berlin, Sauter took interest in the posters wheat pasted along the city’s streets. He made three-dimensional loudspeakers out of layers of the posters and re-sited them how they were found. Discussing the dissemination and receiving of information and role of language in the era of alternative facts, Sauter’s exhibition will feature new loudspeaker reliefs and other sculptures whose forms are familiar to us as methods of communication.

 

 

“Insurrection”
Featuring Marcus Haydock

In this exhibition, Haydock attempts to explore the human condition and our relationship to images from a psychological perspective. “…My work acts as a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious mind, and this bridge leads to a deeper understanding of my purpose and my place in the world.”
-Marcus Haydock
