WEEKEND is pleased to present Days of Our Lives, a collaborative installation of individual works by Sophia Allison, Paul W. Evans and Kim Tucker.
Memory as a tool for peculiar identity / Identity as a device for eccentric inclusion
Using memory as a tool to celebrate home, community and place within the confines of tradition and convention, Days of Our Lives seeks to situate each viewer within the cosmos that emerges through the combination of these three artists' distinct narratives. With each artist rationalizing, rectifying and remembering home as a present and tangible monster, the installation propels viewers into a collective vision that is confrontational yet caring; as meditative as it is frightening.
Each artist addresses our conflicted need to fit into a community or structure that is too saturated, routine and tedious or whose paradigm has simply run its course. By joining together to manifest their own sanctuary at Weekend, a new collective existence is gained through obsessive acts, irony, humor and unique reflection:
Sophia Allison collects, cuts and reconstructs materials to form abstracted physical and emotional landscapes. Her sculpture has been exhibited in Los Angeles at d.e.n. contemporary art, the Craft and Folk Art Museum, the Los Angeles International Airport and most recently in North Carolina at Brevard College.
Paul W. Evans investigates landscape and the subconscious through repetitive appropriation. His paintings have been seen in Los Angeles at the Institute of Cultural Inquiry, the Center for the Arts/Eagle Rock and he has exhibited widely in New York. He has curated numerous exhibitions in the Los Angeles area and received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts, NY.
Kim Tucker creates communal identity through individual psychological storytelling. Recent shows of her sculpture and drawing include exhibitions at L2Kontemporary, ShoeboxLA and AC Projects. She has attended artist residencies in Europe and the United States and received her MFA from the Ohio State University.
