The passage verbatim

Jave Yoshimoto
Dates: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022 to Friday, October 21, 2022

Yoshimoto's work takes on the ephemerality of news and information and how the emotions we bring to each tragedy in the news cycle are swept away by the wave of information that floods the media. He addresses this social amnesia through his art, with the work acting as a social memory for tragic events so quickly forgotten in our information age.

This exhibition is a collection of laser engraved and cut relief sculptures by Yoshimoto, inspired by researched humanitarian stories along his journey across multiple states and countries.  In this work, he retells the narrative of passed down tales from the locals he met while on his travels depicting curiosity, heartbreak, and strengths of the human spirit when faced with incredible challenges.
