Music is falsely ethereal and proud of it. This performance uses the relationship between coaching and action to coax out an experience of musical activity as relatable, manipulable and unimaginable. Keep your eye on the ball. Actually, just keep the ball. Advice translated.
Familiar Laundry by Jeremy Kennedy:
The exhibition includes a Series of 7 Original Works on Paper and a Limited Edition of hand prepared Archival Inkjet Prints, plus a collection of additional works on paper, sculptural pieces and documents from the artist’s studio, Table Blue.
There will also be a customized kubb (King Tackle) pitch set up in the adjacent Outside Gallery for anyone interested in a match of one of the artist's favorite non-athletic games.
The series of originals and limited edition hand prepared works are available for sale onsite and at insertblancpress.net.
The installation of Familiar Laundry at General Projects evokes an experience of the artist’s studio, the warmth and welcoming environment as well as the biting humor and caustic wit often found in his extensive collection of works from over the past decade. Kennedy’s multi-disciplinary catalog draws heavily from a core of uniquely designed humor and word-play. Kennedy continually builds, and maintains a heavy focus on the power of collaboration and the importance of relatable conceptual references.
