Blackbirdspace is fortunate to announce a group show of 12 talented bay area artists elaborating on the ideas of “past lives and personal exorcisms”. This group of artists is known for enriching the San Francisco art scene extensively as well as exhibiting internationally. Through mediums of painting, sculpture, drawing, and performance the artists muse on the idea of past lives within this lifetime. The work ranges from product photography of long shelf life cookies, when taken out of context alludes to ruins or premonitions of destruction, unearthed high school graduation portraits, a meticulously alphabetically ordered King James bible, and visionary paintings
Live performances will shed light on individual personal exorcisms at the opening giving the viewer a window on the ritual practice of art and how it can be employed to exorcise deeply embedded ideas and feelings. The work in this show humorously reveals free associations in conjunction to the theme.
