thrombotic resurrection

April 1, 2017 - April 30, 2014

thromboticArtist Statement: 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.Bio: 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 when she was 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 which are inherent in all of us. These are the cycles of life through which her creativity is channeled, explored, and expressed.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.
