Tempus Projects presents a new group exhibition in its project space. Holy Salad is a collection of work from an exciting group of artists drawing from personal concerns and their wider social corollaries. The exhibition features the artwork of Sofia Arvanitopoulos, Darby Carver, Amanda Kontakos, Libbi Ponce, Kaylin Price, Emiliano Settecasi and Chasity Williams.
This group of young artists create work in a variety of media and through a wide spectrum of perspectives. Holy Salad joins the artwork by a theme of life as a progressive endeavor. They explore preoccupations with self-improvement, the ways in which memories shape current perceptions and growth through crucibles. For example, Emiliano Settecasi investigates nostalgia in relation to design in pop and consumer culture. The design elements created and inspired by the Memphis Group carve out a space physically and temporally that echo still through personal memories. Amanda Kontakos’ meditation on a quarter finds personal parallels in ideas of inherent value as well as physical, emotional, psychological wear. Through a series of conceptual prints, Kaylin Price engages in a search of self-improvement. In the form of a book recalling religious texts, the prints layout sets of instructions toward a personal beatification that is nevertheless interminably elusive.
