Kim Neudorf: totally ruinous / totally ruin us
totally ruinous / totally ruin us
paintings, poetry rituals, collage, dream-logic, psychic material
September 05 – October 17, 2020
If it turns up in the body scan
to be run through without gore,
we’re talking clairsentience.
Tiny particles from my forehead, throat, heart.
They have bones –
held or cooked together –
of fog, soup, and aspic.
They are in a way that isn’t grafted,
to the same cheap
or circular rest.
Isolate from carrying,
what emerges by wanting to ask
in order and for a long time,
if I wasn’t doing it right
to say more. If that’s a coda.
Not things you know in the world.
(excerpt from the big E, poem by Kim Neudorf)
Kim Neudorf’s writing and paintings explore themes of resilience, healing, and survival, while seeking to undo easy legibility in order to honor the daily, more complicated modes of visibility and existence. Their work has appeared most recently at Support, London (ON); DNA Gallery, London (ON); Paul Petro, Toronto; Franz Kaka, Toronto; Forest City Gallery, London (ON); Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre, Kingston; Evans Contemporary Gallery, Peterborough; and Susan Hobbs Gallery, Toronto. They live and maintain a writing and studio practice in London (ON). Website: kimneudorf.com
