Soft Turns and artist Serena Lee will lead a tactile, discursive workshop on digital materialism. They consider the “critical zone” at the scale of bodies—straddling metaphor and literal embodiment—drawing from material processes of recycling and circulations of internal energy in tai chi.

Workshop with Soft Turns and Serena Lee
7 April-29 April
This exhibition is about these objects and bodies. These objects of character and marrow and bodies of her. In multiples. Of finger tips and overgrown cuticles. I suppose. A draft of a draft of how to think about what is there and what is there and not. A language for translating a pause in gesture and what history punctures and movement punctuates.There is just so much space for these objects that sit and watch before directing. The slipping of peony petals between fingers and open wounds. All lining the mouth as a spectre. A spectre of gesture. A recital. A rewriting of scores inherited from the hands that tended gardens and those that fell limp upon rendering. Intrusions and auras. Perhaps this exhibition is about these objects and bodies.
to prepare for a longing, an itch is a solo exhibition of new work by the multidisciplinary conceptual artist erika Defreitas. Comprised of collage, video, and photography, the exhibition explores the artist’s interests in collecting and archiving as a means of understanding post-memory, hauntology, and the enduring presence of loss. in conjunction with the exhibition, the artist will be in residence at Y+ contemporary from January through March 2018.
