Salon 94 Freemans Presents Dear Another by Jessica Rankin

Salon 94 Freemans

Nov. 5, 2014, 06:00 pm

1 Freeman Alley

Jessica Rankin’s exhibition, Dear Another, is a series constellation drawings accumulate words, sometimes sparingly, sometimes in rhythmic convulsions. these randomized word paintings are stitched together into complex, nonlinear patterns and arranged against cerulean blue & black ink mappings of the stars. Taking theories of cosmic expansion and contraction as her starting point, Rankin creates dynamic and highly personal abstractions that oscillate between order and disorder, construction and destruction. For this exhibition, she has collaborated with noted poet, Brenda Shaughnessey, to select a group of writers to react and riff upon the drawings. The result are poems of faded love, the dog of Sputnik, and an ode to Beyoncé. In conjunction with the exhibition, Salon 94 Freemans will host three poetry readings on November 5th, 7th, and 16th and will publish a catalogue of Rankins’ work alongside the poems of Michael Albo, Raphael Allison, Mark Bibbins, Tina Chang, Eduardo C. Corral, Alex Dimitrov, R.Erica Doyle, Matthea Harvey, Cathy Park Hong, Morgan Parker, Brenda Shaughnessy, Pamela Sneed and Craig Teicher.
