Heat, light, sound and electrons flow through a conductor, tethering the subatomic structures of seemingly separate materials. They conduct; exposing the gaps, absences, inaccessibilities, and invisibilities that lie between material bodies. Beyond conduction, Conduit is occupied with revealing the concealed knowledge flowing between our embodied existence and ontological concepts of memory, matter, alchemy, and identity. The artists of this exhibition are not conductors but conduits. They conduit (verb) our personal, social, environmental, chemical, physical, digital, mental, and spiritual realities to find new ways to re-evaluate our existence in a hyper-mediated world.
