IN THERE, OUT HERE opened last night at Leo Koenig Inc., Projekte – a space next door to Leo Koenig Inc. that focuses on exhibitions by artists outside of the gallery’s roster. Curated by  Bill Saylor, an artist inside the gallery’s roster, IN THERE, OUT HERE has one of those risky, airy, poetic press releases and is, in the words of gallery director, Elizabeth Balogh, “that kind of show.

Artists included include: Aidas Bareikis, Joe Bradley, Sarah Braman, Brendan Cass, Bjorn Copeland, Jim Drain, Institutt For Degeneret Kunst, Sadie Laska, Jonas Mekas, A.R. Penck, Joyce Pensato, Chole Piene, Julian Schnabel and Michael Williams.

Gallery says: “Leo Koenig Inc., Projekte is pleased to announce a group exhibition entitled In There, Out Here, curated by Bill Saylor.  Bill has given us a few words for the exhibition…

FLAT VOID PERSISTENCE

COMIC SPEED

A KNIFES LINE TO SOW THE FIGURE DOWN

WAVES AT THE EDGE DOWN A HARD GRAVEL MARCH

LOOK OUT FINGERS

SPACE DICE DEEP

RECORDING EVERY LIFE A MINUTE

EVERY LINE A NOISE, EVERY MARK A SHADOW

MOMENTS ABANDONED

RETURNS THE LOOP, THE MARK, THE WAVE

EVERY DEEP DIVE A HOME

A NEW STEP LOAN

BLACK BOLT RAIN

THROUGH A HURRICANE HAZE

A STREET MAGIC WEIGHTLESS THIN AIR WALK

NORTHERN SKY POTIONS

THE HAND

As we have some amphorous idea of what “that kind of show”or TKOS could be, we might try to pin it down for you to some extent before dinner. TKOS probably includes an artist as curator which usually means something less than scholarly in the inclusive decisions, which we like.  It also means the possibility of capricious obfuscation and great leaps in thought processes, which sometimes we like or dislike depending on what we’ve been looking at this past week. TKOS might also include a concession to ethnographic inspirations and/or romantic ideas of self-expression which everyone keeps a soft spot for somewhere in private.  Regardless of the confusion TKOS is probably a positive thing in general except when there is an occasional exception, which might or might not be the case.
