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.
