"Solar Disturbance 1" by Jukien Langendorff


Tokyo, Japan – waitingroom is pleased to announce the gallery's fifth exhibition, Spirit Assembly, a group exhibition by the artists from Cinders Gallery (Brooklyn, NY) through November 7th to January 16th. It is the first time that Cinders Gallery's exhibition is presented in Japan.
November marks the beginning of winter and traditionally the final harvest before we settle down inside for hibernation as darkness takes over. It is also a time where many cultures celebrate the dead- specifically Day of the Dead in Mexico, in Celtic folklore Samhain, which is said to have influenced Halloween, and in Catholicism, All Souls Day.

In this group show curated by Cinders Gallery, the idea of the spirit is interpreted in many different ways with drawing, painting, sculpture and photography. As supernatural beings trapped between the living and the dead worlds, as the essence of a person or as memories of the past that continue to linger with you long after those moments are gone. The spirit is also represented as energy gained from friends, community, nature, and the sun. The mysteriousness of the dead and our relationship to death is explored with imagery of death masks, nightmarish scenes, monsters and dreamlike states of uncertainty.

This show is equal parts dark and light, a balance of different visions from kindred spirits assembled together by Cinders to
represent a current crop of underground artists bubbling up to the surface.
