Interlocking at Night Gallery

Night Gallery is pleased to present Interlocking, an exhibition of sculptures by Julia Haft-Candell. The exhibition will be on view in our outdoor exhibition space and online beginning on September 19th, 2020. Inspired by the science fiction writing of Ursula K. Le Guin and Octavia E. Butler, Haft-Candell’s ceramics emerge from a fictional world imagined by the artist which she refers to simply as “the infinite.” Within this world the artist builds elaborate systems of symbols as a way to understand our current moment. By creating her own extensive glossary she offers insight into the failures of language in a turbulent time. This ongoing project which began in 2017 has continued to grow into a sprawling lexicon which includes the Interlocking forms in this exhibition.
