FERNWEY GALLERY
916 N Damen Ave | Chicago, IL
April 3 - April 26

Inspired by the long dark winters of Chicago, this exhibition focuses on the Sun at a time when it is missed the most, moments before springtime. As an object that is both illuminating and unseeable, the experience of the Sun is dominated by metaphor and myth. Were the Eye Not Sunlike channels the mythologization of the Sun and our relationship to its immeasurable power. 

April 3 - April 26, Fernwey Gallery presents the physical iteration of Were the Eye Not Sunlike with work in photography, sculpture and installation. Featuring Lauren Edwards, Assaf Evron and Danny Giles, the exhibition proposes its own strain of the solar metaphor, imagining the Sun as the object of theater and a distant, all-controlling dictator in the sky. The exhibition will also be accompanied by a printed publication designed by Mia Nolting and with essay contributions by Third Object and Danny Floyd.
