Dani and Sheilah ReStack - Cuts In the Day

Art Exhibtion
on the sea bed, there is a cloud of red smoke and limbs are coming from the smoke. On the sea bed floor are children's toys: spades and buckets

Dani and Sheilah ReStack (b. 1972, Columbus, Ohio; b.1975, Caribou River, Nova Scotia) will build a site-specific installation that expands on their exploration of queer desire, family, collaboration and conflict.

For their first institutional exhibition in the UK, Dani and Sheilah ReStack will be drawing on Forrest Bess and his search for transcendence of body and mind through painting and reconfigured corporeality, the ReStacks have tried to make communion with Bess’ Chinquapin existence through a search of water, in which to create communication with Bess in Ohio.   

Using video, drawing and photography the ReStacks’ individually, and collectively, push on the constraints of the domestic to yield transformation. Through placement of materials ranging from felt, fur and thread, to angle iron, concrete and wood, they create friction and precarity to construct new hierarchies of sense and order. The exhibition will also include a presentation of their video trilogy: Feral Domestic.
