ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

"Crab explores its wound" features a collection of fabricated artifacts and relics from mysterious rituals. Inspired by her experiences in the field of archaeology, Sophie Stark uses silicone, resin, and hair to explore the thin skin between humor and horror. Stark compares therapy to archaeology, treating the mind as stratigraphy to be carefully unearthed. The exhibition unfolds as a makeshift field lab, displaying the discovery of new histories through relics that fuse pop culture with existing history. Amber stones, ritual objects, and desiccated remains illustrate the processes of excavating, categorizing, and storing mental artifacts in order to understand them and determine their significance.
