San Jacinto College South Campus Gallery is pleased to present Like dust, I lose all form once I hit water, a group exhibition featuring works by J. Bilhan, Evan Coleman, F. Tibiezas Dager, Eric Hernandez, M.A. Guevara, and Christien Vargas.
The exhibition addresses the melancholic violence that has defined contemporary political identification processes and how these have composed our approach to (non) recognition in the space of the archive. Rather than witnessing through a frame, window, or mirror of identity, these artists invite viewers to dissolve their subjectivity in the porous border between visual and verbal. For how can a structure of feeling devolve into one of language? The oscillation between these two creates an erotic telepathy (a feeling from afar). A shifting between distance and closeness; a drive to desire, to touch, to brush against, and to sense a "past" we cannot hold. Not as subjects seeking a point of origin to which we can return and fill our holes but rather like dust that, in water, abandons all form to flow, avoiding any attempt at signification.
