Recology Artist in Residence Exhibitions: Samuel Levi Jones - Disposing Histories; Jeremy Rourke - Lyrics on the Paper; Shushan Tesfuzigta - Come Sit with Me.
Comment by AB: In the front gallery, Samuel Levi Jones guts old encyclopedia and medical reference books and then collages their covers into abstract grids, supposedly questioning "the veracity of the written word and the reverence we place on it." Fair enough. In the center of the floor, he appears to have pulverized book pages, added adhesive and used the substance to cement together a number of the page blocks he's separated from their covers. To top it all off, he disassembles sports balls along their seams and collages the individual sections onto panels, insides of the sections facing out.
In the rear gallery, Jeremy Rourke cuts and collages vintage and contemporary images into somewhat surreal adventures. He also repeatedly photographs certain images and transforms the results into videos. In the annex, Shushan Tesfuzigta weaves discarded materials into functional objects.

Comment by AB: This weekend art event kicks off with an exhibition followed by a late night party. Galleries, artists, musicians and performers all take part in the entertainment. It's kinda like a night club and urban art fair combined. Not sure when the next one of these is planned, but I definitely recommend it. Fun time; loads of art.
