ATA Window Gallery presents “Thrombotic Resurrection” by artists Marcelle Marais and Maciej Makalowski.

Opening: April 17th, 8pm

The soul is the formation of a clot believed by some
to be the divine inside of an immortal intravascular mass vessel. By
obstructing the flow of mortality through the human being, some
believe it is the actual vehicle by which injury occurs. When a spirit
is injured, the body uses platelets to form a blood clot to prevent
life loss at a site distant from its point of origin and is
subsequently resurrected and ascends.

Marcelle Marais (born on July 6, 1985 in Cape Town, South Africa) is a
multifaceted artist working in the mediums of painting, music and performance. Marcelle immigrated to the United States at the age of eighteen and moved to San Francisco in 2004, where she attended the San Francisco Art Institute, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting in 2010. Her work expresses the continuous cycle of regeneration and degeneration of the self in various forms: the forever evolving, expanding, decaying, and rebirth through the intrinsic qualities of human nature.

Bio: Maciej Makalowski is an interdisciplinary artist born in Poznań,
Poland and raised in Montréal, Washington DC, and central
Pennsylvania. His paintings, photographs, collages, and films explore
political histories, nostalgia, popular culture, and fringe
spirituality. He received an MFA in Painting from the San Francisco
Art Institute in 2011 and a BFA in Painting and BA in Political
Science from the Pennsylvania State University in 2008. He has
exhibited in San Francisco, Oakland, Long Beach, Berkeley, Chicago,
Portland, Tulsa, Russia, Pennsylvania, and Italy. He is also a
founding member of the Basement artist collective in the Mission
district of San Francisco. In his spare time, Maciej focuses on
playing music and social work. He currently resides and works in San
Francisco, CA.
