Sol Hashemi's Twelve Ways to Stack Six Stools (2008), 40 by 68 inches, digital print
The show at Crawl Space opens Saturday night. It was curated by Jeffry Mitchell, who has this to say about his choices of 10 Northwest artists including Jamey Braden, Sonya Stockton, Dorian Dyer, and Brett Walker.
A feather, a skull, the moon and stars, a man (?) and half a lady, crystals and sequins and the grandchildren of Piero Manzoni and Allan Kaprow. There’s something about magic, Hippie magic, and the way the LOVE CHILDREN freed themselves from the cross and sought spiritual expression through ancient forms other than the Christian one that resonates through this show for me. It’s very much my story, and the story I look for.
