CurateLA selects ‘The wilds of epiphenomena’ as a must-see

Thank you to CurateLA for selecting The wilds of epiphenomena at Phase Gallery as a must-see exhibition.


New exhibition—’The wilds of epiphenomena’ at Phase Gallery

I’m thrilled to have curated a new exhibition of LA-based conceptual sculptors at Phase Gallery. The exhibition runs from April 13 – May 11, 2024. Full details below.

The wilds of epiphenomena

Scott Benzel, Tanya Brodsky, Alice Könitz, Rita McBride, Kristin Posehn

An epiphenomena is a second-order phenomenon. In the philosophy of mind, it relates to a theory whereby matter gives rise to mental phenomena and consciousness. Each work in The wilds of epiphenomena explores and probes a world beyond the ordinary, a world of second-order and higher phenomena. With materials ranging from dry ice to currency and electronics, these artworks give rise to physical, imaginal, and conceptual shape-shifting, hinting at the mutable nature of mind and presence.

Thinking about Agnes Martin. At a glance her paintings appear to be so simple, yet they are somehow infused with her vision and inquiry in ways that elude description, always marveling.

Kristin Posehn’s paintings are inspired by the reflections of skyscrapers into skyscrapers, a phenomena we can observe in dense financial centers around the world. In her vision, the reflective patterns of these mega-structures become delicate, atmospheric, and haunting glyphs that never repeat. Her paintings change and play in a sly dance with light, evoking languages at once ancient and futuristic.
