From one moment to the next, from one place to another, from state to state, thought to thought, meaning to meaning. Whether conscious or unconscious, physical or psychological, "passages" constellate the human experience in situations of territorial, psychological, ceremonial, bodily, and social transitions.

Can these liminal states be isolated, described, analyzed, and stably defined? Or could we conceive of a passage as the vehicle to mediate between binaries, a channel through which the individual and universal elements of a culture can overlap, collide, and modify one another? This exhibition understands the notion of passage as a productive oscillation between the subjective and the objective, the magical and the scientific, the individual and the collective.

Curated by Francesca Ferrari and Laurel McLaughlin (Bryn Mawr), "passages" features the works of Laura Carlson, Yaochi Jin, Jeremy Jirsa, and Jiwon Woo on March 3-24, 2017. As the seventh edition of the Incubation Series, the show will be hosted by FJORD Gallery, 1400 N. American Street, Suite 105, Philadelphia.

The opening reception will be held on Friday, March 3rd from 7PM to 9PM at FJORD. For more information about the Incubation Series, visit
