This Saturday, January 18th from 6 pm to midnight, Youme Haus in Brooklyn will present “Evidence of Absence is not Absence of Evidence,” the 4th exhibition at the space. The show was curated by VCS alumnae Brooke Tomiello, Amy Kolenut and Sofia Klapischak, who founded Youme Haus last May. Here’s more information from the show’s press release (which you can download via this link ), along with images of works by a few of the exhibiting artists.
Youme Haus is pleased to present “Evidence of Absence is not Absence of Evidence”. For this show, we were inspired by the imaginary marriage between William Hogarth’s and Carl Sagan’s ideas. In Analysis of Beauty, Hogarth highlights “the use and advantage of considering solid objects as only thin shells composed of lines, like the outer-coat of an onion.” The initial encounter of the artworks clearly presents color, composition and form, but subtly unfold the works’ vast density. Carl Sagan’s “evidence of absence” recognizes this initial encounter between the viewer and the work. While one traverses into the density of the piece, one begins to see the intricacies within. Hogarth believes intricacy satisfies man’s innate “love of pursuit”, revealing in fact the plentitude within “absence”.
The exhibition will feature works by the following artists:
