Threewalls is pleased to present meanwhile, a two-person exhibition of current work by Tessa Windt (Pittsburgh) and Jenny Walters (Chicago). meanwhile is space and time at the in-between; the membrane through which memory, desire and longing pass. Windt’s sculptural forms, although deflated are still lucious, while Walter’s images of empty blankets retain their poignancy and hope despite their depiction of absence. Although the body has vacated these artworks, they retain the trace of presence, both remainder and reminder, embodying both the potential and the surplus of life and love.
