So That I Might Speak to You of Your Magnificence, an exhibition of sculpture, installation and drawings by Brooklyn artist Sarah Walko explores the mythic possibilities of objects, images and imagination. The artist mines the unknowable space between her combined materials for new possibilities of narrative, essence and reality. Using such disparate found materials as animal bones, bird nests, gems, flora, texts and test tubes, Walko distills their enigmatic qualities through juxtapositions that establish unexpected tableaux or situations. As ancient alchemists sought in their proto-scientific experiments a physical manifestation for intangible transitions of spirit and essence, Walko funnels these new relationships between objects to evoke the irrational and the illusory much as a shaman unites good and evil or consciousness and physical existence.

This is a group exhibition that serves to demonstrate solidarity among artists who identify with being a Nasty Woman in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, and abortion rights. It also serves as a fundraiser to support organizations defending these rights and to be a platform for organization before the Trump Presidential Inauguration in January (Organized by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore).
