(Un)Pleasant, featuring the work of Coco Spadoni and Krista Brand, is an exhibition of contemporary ceramic sculpture, painting, and found objects. Together, the artists focus on celebrating and assigning new visual meanings to the unsightly, ugly and unlovely. Brand’s floor installations of found objects, litter, and ceramic structures subvert modes of traditional gallery viewing, asking the viewer to confront the floor space (and the objects themselves) on an intimate level. These installations are in conversation with painted compositions that reflect a fragmentation and collapsing of space from a looking-down vantage point. Spadoni’s ceramic sculptures and wall installations use a library of abstracted symbols that reference the bodily to embrace deflated dreams, tributes to failed love, and re-imaginings of queerness.
