James Lewis & Jenine Marsh – “Can’t you hear my voices?”

Rupert kindly invites you all to our residents James Lewis and Jenine Marsh open studios starting 5pm, Thursday, 23 February in art incubator’s Pakrantė gallery space (Vaidilutės g. 79). Artists James Lewis (UK) and Jenine Marsh (CA) will present new sculptural works made during their February residency at Rupert. These new forms appear as approximately similar to themselves, forming extensions between the tangled hierarchies of language and expression embodied within specific material surfaces.

“People” are silhouettes that are both imprecise and singular­ized, faint outlines of voices, patterns of comportment, sketches of affects, not the anonymous chatter of the “public domain.” But what is an affect, if not each time a sketch? A comportment, if not each time a pattern? A voice, if not each time a faint outline? What is a singularity, if not each time its “own” clearing, its “own” im­minence, the imminence of a “propriety” or propriety itself as im­minence, always touched upon, always lightly touched: revealing itself beside, always beside. (“Beside himself” [“à côté de ses pompes”], as the saying goes.)

Jean-Luc Nancy, Being Singular Plural.
