Resonance

Headscapes Warehouse. Long Island City, Queens

Statement

RESONANCE:
Artist-organized warehouse show opens in Long Island City April 17-27.
Headscapes Warehouse: 26-15 Jackson Avenue, Queens 11101.

Carl Jung built himself a house by a lake. He designed and made it with his own hands. It was no ordinary house. Four stone towers represented the human mind, and a courtyard in the center symbolized the deepest inner psyche.

Jung thought our dreams are haunted by the dreams of our ancestors — the dreams of humans who believed in magic instead of certainty. At RESONANCE, a dozen artists dig into archetypes and magic, and, like Jung, apply it to the everyday, to the home. In this collaborative, artist-run group show, the most common objects have deeper meanings, darker pasts, and, most importantly, shared meanings.

Featured artists include:

Jade Brandt
Ben Burke
Monica Canilao
M.V. Carbon
Nathan Corbin
Robin Frohardt
Jay MacDonald
Orien McNeil
Martina Mrongovius
Benjamin Mortimer
Nick Normal
Michael O’Toole

Bank of Mutual Interest unveils a new project in the front room of RESONANCE. Artbacks is a project focused on the symbolic power of money, and specifically the symbol. Here, the dollar is exposed as a magic rune focused on and empowered by billions. The artists presenting create their own money, offering a more positive means of exchange and value. With Swoon, PONEROS, Duke Riley, Christopher Hackett & Bronwen Densmore, Arielle Avenia & Violette Olympia

RESONANCE opens on April 17 and closes on April 27 at the Headscapes Warehouse at 26-19 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, Queens. Several events are scheduled throughout the run including the premier of ReCreation, a film by Nathan Corbin involving 13 noise musicians who entered the woods five years ago this Easter.  There will also be live bands and collaborative dinners in the gallery. A performance experiment in Morphic Resonance will run concurrent with the show.

RESONANCE is organized by Benjamin Mortimer, with support from See.Me, Rockrose, and the Holocenter Center for the Holographic Arts.
