Harry Cushing, Juliana Merz and A.W. Strouse
May 8th - May 24th (2015)
is a seedy carnival
an analphabetic fantasyland that lies just beyond the portal of consciousness
exploring the kaleidoscope of what is known but unthought
a pre-Oedipal color convergence of images and stanzas by Harry Cushing, Juliana Merz and A.W. Strouse
Opening reception is Friday, May 8th, 7-10 pm
Poetry reading at 8 pm
Harry Cushing, Juliana Merz, and A.W. Strouse are artists who live in New York City.

Installation with Chika Matsuda and her video “Starry Night Structure —the sunlight is a starlight”:
"Negative space is filled with a lot of positive things. It depends on what your eyes are fixed to see. The sun light is a star light. Does an object emit its presence from the inner to the outer, pushing its surroundings to claim its territory? Or, does the surrounding suppress the object to determine its existence? My art practice has been an investigation into the relationship between the rational and the irrational, and how our perception and experience are influenced by language, cultural context and histories. We are not trained to see things without intellectual and social filters, and the elemental precognitive experiences are often slip through between the layers of language and the rational mind."
