Comforter, Curated by Petra Collins [March 13 – April 11]
Curated by Petra Collins, Comforter is a group show featuring artists Carlotta Kohl, T.V. Wade, Claire Milbrath, Nguan, and Petra Collins. Comforter looks at the binaries of home/transience and sanctuary/chaos, and how we experience these dualities in contemporary life.
Winter really gets me sad and depressed—it’s so cold and dark and most of my time is spent inside—so all I’ve been thinking about is the space I inhabit and its impermanence. When will I move, what stuff will I take with me, how can I make myself comfortable where I am? Living in New York trains you to treat everything as transient, especially where you live. I grew up in a suburb and then moved to the city and in both spaces I have had this despondent feeling that out of the tranquil sanctuary called home would come chaos; that at any minute things could just change—and things did change and will continue to do so.
