ICOSA Collective Gallery presents TJ Lemanski: "Exit Strategy" artist reception
This is an exercise in strategic thinking, aligning the few routes available to make the right moves. This is an exercise in positive visualization. Pool your resources and make your money work for you. Sage advice if there ever was any. Pool your money and then make more. Easy and repeatable. Back burner debt and lingering health concerns, the OSHA violations and baked-in inequities, and just roll it over. Easy and repeatable. Keep it rolling, like a tide. This is an exercise in strategically thinking visually positive.
TJ Lemanski generally works with refuse and construction materials, aiming for the serene but not pretending something isn't what it is. Materiality is an art word. He was the Fall 2020 artist-in-residence at Habitable Spaces, a sustainable farm and artist residency in Kingsbury, Texas. He is also a member of the perma-hiatus collaborative projects Ink Tank and Free Beer Podcast. TJ lives and works as an art handler in Austin,.
The exhibit will be on display through August 9.
