No Longer Showing.
As we race toward a horizon – on which a climate eclipse, a fully automated future, and identity null point appear to lie – will we find that horizon to be round and ever-receding, like the ever-receding satisfaction of a Netflix Binge, or that it is in fact a sharp corner, around which we’ll enter another plane of existence? The viewer of Lex Brown’s exhibition triggers their own participation in this cyclical landscape of language and geometry. Through an installation of motion-sensor video, large-scale drawing, and performance, Brown’s cast of characters draw us into an evolving, self-contained narrative circuit, presenting each of us with slips in reality that we’ve already begun to build into our everyday. Curated by Lumi Tan.
