NOUSTROPHAGOPHILIA: April 29th, 7pm – 11pm – content

FOLD and Cafe Sauce present:


BLOOD FEAST FOR THE MIND: Psychogenic phase transition portends the entity-nonentity.

Friday, April 29th, 7pm – 11pm

During Stewart Losee’s solo exhibition Kabinet Materia.

Please join us at a very special event, a pre-premiere of FOLD’s new play MIND. Inspired by French poststructuralism/existentialism, the Mandala principle of Tibetan buddhism, and the Western hermetic tradition, MIND pits five projections of neurotic consciousness against each other in a doomed struggle for metaphysical supremacy and self-transcendence.

Followed by a delicious cannibal feast….

Losee’s work has long tread the line between so-called naïve and ‘high’ art, believing that both may offer up a mirror to the human psyche, illuminating the algorithms of raw desire. The works at KABINET MATERIA largely consist of gouache over wooden relief. Losee cuts the reliefs utilizing a CNC router, and mixes all of the paints himself to achieve a highly-saturated palette. Evoking digitally-oriented subject matter through traditional materials, Losee parodies the influx of would be folk artists into the new medium of the Internet. Large-scale facades have been substituted for the walls and floor of the gallery so as to provide an environment which the remaining works can inhabit, suggesting an installation arranged like a hypertext. A picture in a room can represent a portal to another room: worlds within worlds strung together with repeating motifs.
Nous (/ˈnuːs/), sometimes equated to intellect or intelligence, is a philosophical term for the faculty of the human mind which is described in classical philosophy as necessary for understanding what is true or real.

Gastro- is a common English-language prefix derived from the ancient Greek gastros (“stomach”).

Phago- Word Origin: a combining form meaning “eating, devouring,” used in the formation of compound words.

Philia (/ˈfɪljə/ or /ˈfɪliə/; Ancient Greek: φιλία), is one of the four ancient Greek words for love. In Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, philia is usually translated as affection. The complete opposite is called a phobia.

POMOROCOCOFOMO April 17th, 2016 – content


Sunday, April 17 at 7 PM

On this blessed Sunday eve we will explore the array of holes that can be found in the common human face. We will modulate their inputs, and optimize for maximum titillation. Prepare to consume a classical still life. Prepare to smell things and let your tongue move as if all words were onomonopias. Open your ears to babies crying, then babies singing through black wooden tubes, through Invisible Dave’s mouth. Let the gentle drums of Erik Z guide you over the placid waters of never-scapes. Let the hyper sentiment of Ziemba paint your capacity for emotion in a honey-like glue that will collect iridescent beetles over the duration of the evening. Join us in a modernist’s anti thesis. See your face in the dim reflection of the black greco-roman empire, and in your mind slowly dip all the monuments in crude oil. Join us.
