thoroughly known, libi rose striegl
SPECTRE Arts
, 1004 Morning Glory Ave.
SATURDAY reception: March 21, 6 to 9 p.m.

Join us for the opening of thoroughly known, new works by libi streigel.

“thoroughly known” considers diagnosis, disorder and mental health through experiments with language, paper, machine systems and code. Through the works making up “thoroughly known” I am seeking to – speculatively, unrealistically, defiantly, subjectively, absurdly – transform an index of disorders into an enactment of disorder.
