The works included in this exhibition demonstrate a yearning for the "yes." As Clarice Lispector wrote in her final work, a yes represents a beginning of the world, or alternatively, a yes within the never — the mystical space of a world without beginning or end. In our society, yes is an affirmative answer. Yes binds us to the social contract of consent in complicity with authority and order. Underlying this binding web we collectively embody and individually navigate is a more primal yes: an explosion of life within the vastness of the universe; the potency of a sexual encounter with a stranger; the spells, fantasies, and deities made animate through our imaginations. The yes contains the creative and destructive forces that promote fusion, alchemy and revolution. The angelic, the spectral, and the alien are found together in a chorus chanting "yes."
