The Sun Sets Sideways

Gallery 1
Jul 15 - Aug 19

A new collection of drawings, sculpture, installation and video comprise the fragmented elements of a narrative around Spike - a dog-shaped television writer living in the town of Sideways. Spike is visited by Octavia Chandrila Diazepene and Lick Mylegs, two non-human singer-songwriters who represent the beauty, danger, and soggy implications of invoking human-centric psychological metaphors onto the land and sea.
