Christin Graham and Sam Trioli will be featured as guest curators for the New York City based gallery, Field Projects in their Winter 2020 Open Call. Hoarders House opens on Thursday, January 9 from 6-8 PM and remains on view through February 8, 2020.
Through the darkness a lonely light glimmers ahead, gleaming in the juxtaposition of the cold winters night. A portal, a trap, or a hopeful transmission that glows ahead, one will only find out once they’ve set foot inside the hoarders house.
Hoarders House is an exhibition curated by Christin Graham and Sam Trioli. On view will be works by Angela Alba, Corinne Bernard, Margot Bird, Sebastian Blanck, Cady BogartIan Clyde, Bobby Davidson, Keith Ervin, Matthew Farrell, Gregory Hedderman, Lindsey Howard, Kelly Inouye, Lindsay Iredale, Jessica Lancaster, Sarah Malekzadeh, Ana Medina, Ashley Miller, Kilee Price, Buket Savci, Emily Silver, Reba Tyson.
In a similar way to being presented like a personal collection, Hoarders House plays with the idea of presentation through a desired sense of gathering, acquiring and collecting. Like anyone, we share the occasional calling to hold on to moments, imagery and objects to capture in some form our daily feelings and desires. This exhibition, which includes sculpture, painting, photography and many other forms of media, works to form a collection of meaningful visual human connections. Though these qualities take many different shapes and forms, the relation lies in the desire to hold on to them, capture and maintain in an almost endless abundance.
Hoarders House invites viewers to step inside this carefully curated space to enjoy a constellation of our material world, meaningful connections and momentary experiences. For within this mass array of art, and theatrical display, we find ourselves steeped inside a precarious perspective on time itself, and present day life.
