PHANTOMS AND SOFT TIME:

Arianna Khmelniuk and Wihro Kim

Curated by Iman Person / Qualia Projects

JANUARY 10 - FEBRUARY 14

OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 6-9pm

The Swan Coach House Gallery is pleased to present Phantoms and Soft Time, a group exhibition guest-curated by Qualia Projects. Phantoms and Soft Time investigates the margins of reality, memory, and longing through the work of Arianna Khmelniuk and Wihro Kim.

In the words of Iman Person, founder of Qualia Projects: “‘Phantoms’ can suggest a slip in the familiar rootedness of our existence—an uncanniness that extends toward, and beyond, our subconscious. Through performance, scent, and painting, each artist awakens relationships between the viewer and the work, which fold within lapses of time and catalyze other dimensions. Phantoms and Soft Time questions how a multitude of these etheric glitches can alter our notions of the present. The exhibition also invites us to account for our everyday phantoms, phantoms which nurture the possibilities of other worlds existing simultaneously within the past and future.”

This is the second year that the Swan Coach House Gallery has invited a guest curator to contribute to our Gallery programming. We are proud to be associated with Iman Person and Qualia Projects.

Qualia Projects is a curatorial studio founded by visual artist Iman Person. The studio propels collaboration between fields and stimulates porous modes of creation. We foster experiences that are rooted in dialogue to highlight process and challenge the lucidity of art experiences. Within the heart of Qualia is an expression of working within an intuitive approach, to arrive at innovative concepts that are designed to evolve and inspire.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Sara Giles Moore Foundation

OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 6-9 pm

Dreams are the language of the unconscious mind. This exhibition presents three emerging artists who process their waking lives through a prolific free-flow of imagery. Each demonstrate a painting and drawing practice that works like dreams, mixing abstract and literal elements into distinct personal styles of expression.
