“Children at play, artists at work, and scientists measuring quantum effects share this in common: they are all creating reality.” – LEONARD SHLAIN

ABOUT THE BOOK
An intimate meditation on an almost infinite subject, Space aims to explode an ordinary everyday word into a dazzling prism via an exploration of some of the many interpretations of the term. Artist Shana Mabari asked more than a dozen individuals from dramatically different walks of life—from an astronaut and a filmmaker to an art critic and a musician—what they think about when they think about space. Their answers, which alternate with exceptional work from contemporary Southern California artists selected by curator Andi Campognone, invigorate and inspire, and in turn become fodder for reflection upon our relationship to ourselves, to others, and to the universe at large.

“No editorializing takes place here. There is no fluff. Yet the two men leap from artist to artwork, from observations about narrative structure to biology to the manifestation of surfaces. It is humorous, deadly serious, and very encouraging to witness; the Apollonian and Dionysian impulses can coexist. This conversation demonstrates the joy of an intellectual and poetic exchange between two artists who share a knowledge of the deep concerns of art making in all its myriad forms.”
– Excerpt from review by Matt Ballou, in NeotericArt

Betye, Lezley and Alison Saar have created some of the most powerful, important and deeply moving art in our contemporary world. Their compelling works forge idiosyncratic constructions of social memory and personal identity, as well as the cultural histories underlying them. All three Saars assemble two- and three-dimensional works based on unexpected juxtapositions of form and content. They deploy the flotsam of material culture, from discarded architectural components (old windows, ceiling tiles, wall paper) to domestic detritus (washboards, buckets, shelves) to historic photographs and printed fabrics.

What is meant when using khôra to describe this exhibition, a Platonic concept that explains the space in which ideas exist? In this exhibition space is formed and agitated by the objects, shifting between imagination and reality, the tactile reality of our everyday life re-formed as a fantasy. It is a game that plays with perception. The artists compete with reality by using reality to trigger a new meaning or response as reality ignites each individual’s association with the module that has been created as a new entity.
