Pierogi is pleased to present Idiom I and Idiom II, two consecutive exhibitions, each including work having a related visual language. “Idiom” typically refers to the written word, meaning either, a characteristic vocabulary or usage of a particular group or, an expression whose meaning as a whole is not inferred by the typical meanings of the individual words making up the phrase. In other words, when combined the individual parts create something unexpected, such as “the devil’s in the details” or “waste not want not.” In this case it is a visual language and transformance which is referenced.
Idiom I will include the works of Kirsten Deirup, J. Fiber, Darina Karpov, Johan Nobell, Ryan Mrozowski and Lynn Talbot. The exhibition dates will be January 10 – February 9, 2014.
Idiom II will include the works of Justin Amrhein, Beth Campbell, Jonathan Herder, Mark Lombardi, William Powhida, and Ward Shelley. The exhibition dates will be February 14 – March 16, 2014, with an opening on Friday, February 14 from 7 – 9PM.
