Culture Room is pleased to announce its first exhibition, Setting the String, by Andrew Lee Gonzalez. Setting the String explores pastimes with predetermined ends. Just as the puzzle box’s image spoils the surprise, Gonzalez contemplates the pleasures of the known and finite while frustrating the linearity of such activities. His work compresses time into single lines, ushered forward by gradients along twisting paths. The myth of “pure experience” is debunked by the control and comfort knowledge affords. Setting the String takes a step back in an era of multiplicity, questioning the complacency of knowing yet still doing.
