Chicago, IL – Comfort Station is pleased to present two juxtaposed solo shows, featuring Wait for Now by Jessica Taylor Caponigro & Mmmmm by Justin Petertil.
Jessica Taylor Caponigro has resolved to create art that is accessible to a variety of audiences, rich with pattern, repetition, and reproduction. Inside the Comfort Station, Taylor Caponigro’s works react to the building’s original purpose as a place where travellers were stranded, waiting for the next trolley to arrive and carry them to their destinations. Rooted in a feeling of being trapped or restrained, her works offer reprieve for visitors, who will be met with a soothing, comfortable homage to the Comfort Station’s history and purpose.
Outside, Justin Petertil will install a soundscape consisting of tree-hung plastic fruit, each concealing a low volume audio device. Utilizing photocells to make the pitch and dynamics variable with light, the result will manifest in a subtly shifting soundscape and uncanny visual, audio experience. It will be an incongruent treat for passersby and a full synesthetic meal for those that choose to linger.
These installations encapsulate the simultaneously familiar and foreign, resulting in a wholly unsettling experience. For further information about this show, please contact Comfort Station curator Robyn Paprocki.
The sign refers to Hot Rod by Orly Genger, which is indeed on view by lakefront at Monroe, though the sign remains.
A really lovely jacquard piece by Patrick McGuan as part of his current exhibition with Soo Shin at Peregrine Program.
Most likely preparing for the Nairy Baghramian exhibition on the Bluhm Family Terrace opening May 14.
