Alterations/ Mechanism of water
At Intervals, Group Exhibition
Beginning in October of 2019, Akin launched its second year of hosting artists-in-residence at 158 Sterling Road. Working across a wide range of disciplines and at their own pace, the material realities of COVID 19 worked to draw attention to time as an unpredictable material that brings about change or taunts us with the unknown. Dedicated to sharing and growing their practice, the work on display represents some of the artists who chose to retain their studios with AKIN by working in intervals and following physical distancing protocols to thwart the risks of co-working spaces and shared public facilities.
“Beyond time being an inescapable element that became heightened socially and psychologically over the last six months, many of the artists presenting in At Intervals explore time as both a subject and a material…Felicia Cirstea mixed media paintings entitled Mechanisms of Water also explore evolutions and intervals of the psyche. By using multiple facial expressions Cirstea depicts “the flux and flow of our emotional states during times of struggle.” “ Jill Price
