Reverse Grip 

Automat Collective

Philadelphia, PA

July 09 - August 06, 2022

Co-curated with Danielle Degon and Lou Serna

Recall myths of expansion. Reflect on past and place. Twist your body and throw.  Release and allow the weight to carry it out of your hands. At the moment you let go, whip your arms straight out in front of you and spread your fingers wide. Try to time your release by "feeling" when it has built up full momentum. Propelled by gravity. 

Reverse Grip brings together the work of Rebecca Arp, Madeleine Conover, Gabrielle Constantine, Catherine Nelson, Chau Nguyen, Hannah Parrett, and Todd Stong, curated through AUTOMAT Collective’s Annual Open Call. Their work considers moments of gain and loss through reflections on diaspora, colonization, identity, and grief.
