Launch Pad Gallery: Featuring the work of local emerging artists.

Transcending States

3rd Anniversary Installation Group Show

Featuring installations by Ca-leb Shelley Lambides, molly jochem, Robin Corbo & gyrl grip (Llewyn Máire & Lisa Newman)


ABOUT THE SHOW

Some of you may remember our show in November 2006 called “Shrines, Altars and Reliquaries” where we divided the space into different compartments- this show is similar, except there are fewer and larger spaces, and instead of focusing on the relationship between the dead and the living, this show is about transcending states of all sorts- Idea’s bubbling into reality from imagination, dreams penetrating wakefulness, the unborn emerging into the peopled world, the past emerging into the future- all of these different states connected together invisibly and intrinsically.
