“What if we joined our wildernesses together? Sit with that for a minute. That the body, the life, might carry a wilderness, an unexplored territory, and that yours and mine might somewhere, somehow meet. Might, even, join.” – Ross Gay

This exhibition is an arrangement of works by artists offering forms of connection between, through and within each other.
