"You're Not My Father", Paul Slocum
This joint exhibition is an exploration of a new type of objecthood, which emerged as a product of the information era: the ephemeral-imperfect, forced back into the palpable reality from the domain of codes and numbers. Kevin Bewersdorf and Paul Slocum work toward establishing the contemporary expressive vocabulary, capable of transforming the internet-mediated, generic content into meaningful statements.
