Mark Blanchard, Cass Davis, kwabena foli, and Kelly Kristin Jones: Tracing Faults
January 3 – February 13

Artists Reception: January 3 | 5 – 8 PM

“Tracing Faults is one of two synchronous exhibitions featuring works from Blanchard, Davis, foli, and Jones. The companion exhibition, To Unmake a Fold, will take place at the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) Visual Arts Gallery. Both exhibitions are curated by Jeff Robinson who works as a HATCH curatorial resident and as Director of the Visual Arts Gallery at UIS.

In geology, faults and folds refer to tectonic activities that result from immense stress and pressure below the Earth’s surface. These environmental tensions trigger groundbreaking events that reshape the visible landscape. As joint exhibitions, Tracing Faults (and) To Unmake a Fold, use these seismic actions as an analogy for the social, cultural, and political rifts that permeate our present human condition, and consider how these quandaries prompt opportunities for collective renewal and redemption. Blanchard, Davis, foli, and Jones create works that trace the underlying structures and systems that infringe upon our human rights to equality, freedom of expression, and freedom from discrimination. Working in video, sculpture, installation, and poetry, these artists present transformed narratives that unmake discord by re-visualizing the freedom intrinsic to our being.”
