SPF15 is thrilled to invite you to the eleventh exhibition, ~ , a solo presentation of the work of San Diego based artist Catherine Czacki.

Witchy casings for sharp fingers, matte flesh worms, sewn morsels. Amethyst, glass, tamarind seeds, plastic, undesignated stones. Ash orbs of burnt journals recording the past, forecasting blank imminent futures. Freak flags hanging in. Hanging finger-tips. Cardboard cancers and fangs, buttered nutrition bar packaging on a medical orange hued petroleum podium. A half shaved walnut substituted for pigs stolen thyroid gland. Serpentine wire hanger menacingly mustaching an empty computer stand. Paper and clay apparatuses for framing, dented by squeezing loaded hands. Plastic bottle of seaside rocks, blowing thick glue through holes. Rituals need noisemakers that punctuate rhythmic biological moves. Unplayable flutes send messages. Fabric under and over things––hard featured shapely charming aesthetic particularities, draped and draping. Scraps are no fortune.
