Press Release



"November 2nd"


November 2, 2020 - January 6, 2020


"The Eve of Election Day. A fresh cycle of power, a regeneration of control, a recapitulation of dominance. A society creased and crumpled. Sectarianism. Resentment. Paranoia. The credulous listen, the naive act, the ignorant speak. Lives of passion and lassitude. No one not addicted. A violent heritage. Utopian dreams. Anger. Solitude. Fear. Thieves lead. Heroes despair. Meaninglessness as a fashion. Absurdity as an ethos. Unabating consumption. Arrogance. Avarice. Fury. New gods for a new era. Trapped in an exaggerated pose. A circle of infinite irony. Succumbing to inevitability. Truth is a fiction. Terror is a stimulant. Nightmares fuel the imagination.


A prophecy: you emerge from the dark, renewed by resilience, transmuted in the forge of catastrophe, warmed in the glow of tomorrow's dawn.”
