Iyvone Khoo, Pinar Yoldas at Upfor Gallery
February 6, 2020
January 4 – February 29, 2020
First Thursday art walk February 6 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
Absence of Myth includes new video, digital prints and sculptures by artist Iyvone Khoo, and 3D and 2D prints by Pinar Yoldas. These two artists offer different but related propositions for what could come next for humans and species whose fates hang in our balance. Khoo uses detritus from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch as a focal point to examine our unwillingness to accept a co-equal role in the natural environment. Yoldas poetically imagines our role in shaping human evolution and capabilities, presenting “designer babies” altered by the characteristics of ancient Greek deities. Both artists intermingle a grounding in natural science and biology with social critique, rendering idiosyncratic works of unusual beauty.
