Chicago artists (now living in Puerto Rico) Chris Silva and Lauren Feece have a new joint show opening this Friday at the Believe Inn.
Info from the Believe Inn site...
We are a recently married couple who have been enjoying the processes & challenges of collaborating and also find ourselves influencing each other in our solo work, both artistically, and more generally speaking, as human beings...so the idea of "mating calls" seems fitting in more ways than one. In the act of "mate calling" the would be lovers make calls to each other until their sounds weave into a sweet love song or just plain sweet love. That seems to sum up nicely (and a bit idealistically) how these collaborations have been taking shape.
This will be a small showing of some of the individual and collaborative works we've made within our last 2+ years of living in Puerto Rico. We live on 16 acres of land - basically a small plot of jungle along a river - and try our best to only leave the property for survival supplies and beach time. The isolation and break from the hustle of the city has been lovely and is creating a nice space to explore new directions and re-examine the roles we wish to play as artists. This show will be going up just before our first wedding anniversary and strangely enough we have just been slotted for another collaborative show which happens to be opening up the day before Valentines Day... we're starting to wonder if all of our shows will be so incredibly cute.
