“A black star appears, a point of darkness in the night sky's clarity. Point of darkness and gateway to repose. Reach out, pierce the fine fabric of the sheltering sky, take repose.” ― Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky
Taking its title from the iconic novel by Paul Bowles, the artists in this exhibition looks to the stars for comfort, often in the darkest of times. No matter how surreal, how political, how dangerous our circumstances, we still gaze upwards for solace. What we find in the abstract concept we call the “sky” is the true and original shapeshifter, an ever-evolving storyboard onto which we project ourselves and our mythologies.
