havoc and tumbled
Kera MacKenzie and Andrew Mausert-Mooney
July 11, 2015 – July 25, 2015

The collisions and ecstasy of 3, 2, 1 . . . and the 6,028th time it gets called. What happens in the limbs, in the gut, on the lips, when everyone in the room locks on synch? Learning To Inherit The Long Slog. In order to be ready we’re lining the windows with plants that thrive in tumult, turning on our TVs, and battening down to find a few kinds of time: 3, 2, 1. . . .

Reception: Saturday, July 11 // 8 PM
Gallery Hours: Tue, Wed, Thu 4-7 PM + Sat 12-3 PM
