This exhibition stages an interaction between Sarnelle’s collaged, dream-like text and a series of sculptures made of rope, plastic, animal parts and other materials. Also included is a 7-min video filmed in Los Angeles, a music composition that will be performed live during the opening reception, and dogs-only programming in the gallery. Selections from this body of work have been exhibited at House Guest, and NAVEL, Los Angeles in 2018.
