SPECTRUM is the difference that matters. SPECTRUM is differentiated and covers myriad forms of expression and forms of thought that are ever-expanding. SPECTRUM is one way of figuring the syntax of what it means to be human in which all semantic forms of meaning that had clothed and enwrapped humanity have fallen away and have become history. SPECTRUM is one trajectory at taking a stab at what this implies.
Francis Dot and Pace Taylor are two artists who locate themselves as different instantiations of the SPECTRUM and were invited to present elements and particles of their practice, identity, history and consciousness of themselves as they are situated in relation to their relative experiences. If there is a logic to be teased out of this exhibition it is that of disparate elements combining, of two artisans fashioning their own garments of creation and factors of their own selves for all to see. The all-capitalization of SPECTRUM as word and as title points to the fact that whereas artists formerly made and presented their work within the context of the continuity of meanings, they now do so now without expectations, without any tethering, outside of any narrative that is not their own, and carrying contents poured out, contents that never empty
