Cenon at Mav
July 10 - Aug 4
In this series of new sculpture photographs by Cenon at Mav, they configured images that evoke notions of rest and recovery. In creating Mekanik, like a machine, they tried to compose images of repair, of trying to assemble one self. The scattered pieces of texture, tools and objects is a constellation of emotive color and composition. It is not exact to what these objects are, but it’s an invitation to look into one’s psyche in a time of a difficult circumstance. As if it’s like a candy-colored misery, the color of their mind. What pain extracts is the renewal of wisdom, of testing the limits of endurance, of how far one can go. The draping seems like a seabed floor for crispy anemones and trash waiting to be uncovered, to be defined. It’s a layered visual of uncovering, assembling, realizing, becoming into one vis-a-vis shattering, escaping, exploding into infinity. It’s a cycle, a moment that takes some time to realize, to heal, to unbound — to forever. -D.Tumala
