I Hear You Singing Through the Wires
New Work by Joseph Rynkiewicz
Opening Reception: Friday, June 7 from 7-10PM
Gallery Hours: By Appointment Only
Johalla Projects is pleased to announce I Hear You Singing Through the Wires, its first solo exhibition with Chicago artist Joseph Rynkiewicz. The exhibition will run from JUNE 7 to JULY 5. Please join us for an opening reception on Friday, June 7 from 7-10 p.m.
Joseph Rynkiewicz’s work is rooted in the imprint that every action leaves behind. Whether a dent in the cosmos or our consciousness, his work links time and place, people and nature and leaves behind questions—not as confusion but rather, meditation.
I Hear You Singing Through the Wires reveals how performance, whether seen or unseen, continues to ripple through time and space. This metaphysical inertia is represented with beautiful simplicity in the crux of the exhibition, “Arrangement for Endlessness.” In reality, this telephone pole is a finite object installed within Johalla Projects, but the illusion, accomplished with mirrors, is that it extends infinitely in both directions. The viewer in Chicago is invited to imagine this expanding telephone pole generates a bridge from us to the other side of the world, which is literally somewhere in the Indian Ocean.
The works in this show are each icons of consequence. We are given a single snapshot of time and asked to conceptualize what came before and what may happen after and how all these moments are connected in some way. Like “Arrangement for Endlessness,” each of the works in this exhibition provide a meditation on the invisible network that reverberates through the universe, binding everything.
JOSEPH RYNKIEWICZ lives and works in Chicago. His work was recently shown at ACRE Projects and New Capital. He holds a BFA in photography from Columbia College and although he doesn’t really make photographs anymore, the degree helped land him a pretty great job. He loves whiskey and cats. Not always together. I Hear You Singing Through the Wires is also supported by a Community Arts Assistance Program (CAAP) grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) and Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
