Artist list

Seth Papac
‘Seth Papac’s work reveals us as equals to it. It exposes our bodies as mere walls and structure. It cloaks us in personhood. It allows us to try on our yearning for it. Each piece elicits anesthetized sensations hazily tied together: recollections never experienced, desire found wanting, impotent Freudian dreams, and lush landscapes made barren. A sense of shame goes hand-in-hand with a sense of allure and a sense of farce. These could not really be the things we love. These could not possibly be tackier. These could not be any more superficial. These could not be more passé. These could not be more beautiful.’
– Excerpt from catalogue essay by Ruth Koelewyn.
