 The Space Program is proud to present Flesh & Mesh,  an exhibition featuring performance and

time-based media, curated by Lincoln Lysager on view at Icebox Project Space.

Colloquially, the word flesh is attributed to the amalgam between skin and skeleton. Muscle,

tissue, and fat comprise the corporeal matrix of structure and substance. In this abstract,

interstitial space, the exhibition Flesh & Mesh  posits form. Fifteen artists, selected through an

open call put out by The Space Program, create work that inhabits the Icebox, expanding and

settling over a two-week period.

This living exhibit pushes the viewer to let go of a need for definitive perceptual notions of

what a thing is . Flesh & Mesh  asks us to experience the mediums themselves, their shifting

forms, and to show up for the manifested metamorphosis at the end of the exhibition,

acknowledging its potential discrepancies with our own perceptions. The physical structures

employed in the space draw on architectural tropes of performance and habitat. These serve

as skeletons to support sculpture, performance, and video. The culmination of moving parts

will result in a single image of documentation: the metamorphosis of sensorial, cerebral, and

primal that comprise Flesh & Mesh.
