Swampspace is spellbound in presenting
Surface Layers Evolved
by Kubiat Nnamdie
Opening July 26th 7-11 pm
Kuby's solo show of photography alludes to the metaphysical distillation processes occurring in disparate areas of modern life. Curated by Jane Hart, the selection of photographs elucidates distinct events of the transformation process as experienced by this young Nigerian artist living in America.
As if to sip an Iowaska brew or gulp on DMT giving way to deep trance meditation, Surface Layers Evolved attempts to convey a dimensional collapse defined by ambiguity of focus to reveal new horizons for the subconscious. In this imagery, individual perception is warped and ordinary objects take on an anthropomorphic quality. Nnamdie's photography erases the programed reality typified by Weegee and Cindy Sherman to skillfully intuit a chaotic spiritual energy that is at once cleansing and obliterating; taking us beyond our comfort zone.
