Continuing this week, Zachary Buchner’s current exhibition Various Agents. To make an appointment via TOCK, visit our website or follow the ‘reserve’ button in our profile.

Buchner is interested in mining a social landscape built on complex systems of connectivity and isolation in an attempt to better understand the contingencies of contemporary experience and space. He inserts references to art history, film, natural disasters, climate change, urban sprawl, mass information and surveillance, as well as images he captured during the past year of quarantine and lockdown.

His newly introduced imagery, together with his use of and fascination with plastics, speak to the constant and malleable way he views the history of painting and its connection to our contemporary time. The systems at play in this exhibition are simultaneously nurturing and damaging, reflective and absorbing, inputting and outputting. For Buchner, the work in Various Agents questions how far this dispersion and connectivity can stretch.

Opening tomorrow! Slow Pause, a solo exhibition of new works by Jeremy Bolen in Gallery Two. Schedule your visit through the reserve in our profile.

Pictured: Jeremy Bolen, Slow Pause #7 (April 2020), 2021.

Slow Pause explores our impact on the planet and its health. With the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak and the resultant pandemic, we saw a dramatic reduction in human travel around the globe. This resulted in the Earth vibrating less starting in the spring of 2020. Utilizing makeshift seismographs, airplane parts, tires, bleached coral and archives of the earliest writings on climate change, Bolen’s newest body of work incorporates unique, material-based and site-specific recording processes to explore ways of understanding the unseen and how our patterns of movement impact the world we live in.
