Richelle Gribble, Janna Avner, Elí Joteva, Amanda Stojanov: Vibrant Matter: Artworks Refiguring Form

  • Beacon Arts Building 808 North La Brea Avenue Inglewood, CA, 90302 United States (map)

Vibrant Matter is an exhibition of works from four artists that explores open-ended technologies and different mediums. Each artist tinkers with new and old approaches to master the inconformable art of disobeying material corporeality and software structure, and to unravel and then rebuild distinct strata via the programmed codification of form.  The artists are also interested in approaching the tools of distance and dehumanization with a consideration of whether and how they might be used to heal a certain set of wounds. 

Vibrant Matter merges mediums of both organic and inorganic imagery—such as depictions of plant life with holographic materials—which become woven into larger compositions. The synthesis of light and matter, terra firma with computerized simulations, is a dissection of these qualities’ distinct possibilities, which allows us to evaluate and displace their definitions.  These integrations are also attempts at holistic coherence. When combined, these vibrant matters become something else entirely—not as teleological resolution for all kinds of creative activity, but as progress toward hopeful futurities.
