ICOSA Collective presents "Comity of Ghosts: New Work by Darcie Book & Shawn Camp" opening reception
ICOSA Collective presents "Comity of Ghosts: New Work by Darcie Book and Shawn Camp," comprised of disparate objects and images, connected by their experiences as living beings. Islands in the darkness, these works are examined through a lens of collective vulnerability.
The dimly lit space, warm and comforting, is like a blanket under which you can hide. But that dark is also terrifying in its inherent sense of free-fall; fear of the unknown - of what lurks in the shadows. Through a conjured manipulation of substance and light, the show oscillates between visceral physicality and ethereal immateriality. Tiptoeing back and forth between realms of the living and the dead.
In this darkened, meditative space, where individual works serve as beacons, lighthouses, and contact points, Book and Camp invite us into a world where time expands and contracts. Our normal waypoints are nowhere to be found - there is only the echo of a familiar memory as we float in the darkness amongst ghosts, friendly and otherwise.
ICOSA Collective will host an extended and socially distanced opening. Masks are required and reservations will be available for a one hour time slot. Guests can arrive anytime during their slot, but no more than four guests will be allowed at one time. Reservations are encouraged but not required.
The exhibition will remain on display through October 31.
