ICOSA Collective presents "I Believe in Things I Cannot See" opening reception
The exhibition "I Believe in Things I Cannot See" invites visitors to experience ICOSA Collective as a transformed immersive space of slippage and navigation. Utilizing large, sculptural forms composed primarily of paper, Darcie Book & Tammie Rubin create a spatial dichotomy and provide the opportunity to travel between two distinct realms. The artists investigate how to turn their collective space into an object, where awareness of body and movement become essential.
Book is a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores paint as object and architecture through innovative processes using acrylic paint and metal leaf. Rubin is an artist whose sculptural practice considers the intrinsic power of objects as signifiers, wishful contraptions, and mythic relics while investigating the tension between the readymade and the handcrafted. Using intricate motifs, she delves into themes involving ritual, domestic and liturgical objects, mapping, migration, magical thinking, longing, and identity.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until June 25.
