a celebration of the art of xerography (photocopying)
October 25 – November 17th at The Lab in SF
opening reception Thursday October 25th 6-9pm
Work that addresses the divide, if one can be said to exist, between internet and life – the “inter-life crisis” – (re)locates it, bridges or widens it, inhabits it, disrupts it, or ignores it. Work that brings the online offline or offline online in interesting ways, explores new notions of public/private, examines the utopian/dystopian futures and histories of the internet, or work that otherwise speaks to the changes in everyday life that widespread connectivity has engendered.
FICTILIS collects collections. Especially collections that are interesting, unusual, unique, obscure, and so on. Collections that required some kind of creative categorization or idiosyncratic taxonomy, that draw attention to the processes and politics of collecting. Collections that impart aesthetic value into everyday things, rather than collections of things that are already recognized as valuable. Not just collections of rare things, but collections of things that are rarely collected.
