November Exhibition: ‘Object Permanence’ by Christy Mitchell – Read the review!

‘Object Permanence’ by Christy Mitchell

Closing Reception: Friday, December 2 from 5-8pm

Exhibition Duration: November 11 – December 2, 2022

Open Hours: Fridays & Saturdays 12-5pm

The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery’s Director, Christy Mitchell, returns with her annual solo show this November with ‘Object Permanence’. The term refers to the understanding that objects continue to exist even when they cannot be sensed. During the pandemic, sticking to the indoors, we all assumed that life still existed outside our walls, that there would be a similar world to rejoin when the time came. Through the use of walls, furniture, a portal and even artificial intelligence, Mitchell creates an installation that is part dream and part allegory on our collective experience with covid and the new world that surrounds us.

From: ‘Christy Mitchell’s ‘Object Permanence’ Explores Expectations in a Post-COVID-19 World’ by Pamela Polston

Object permanence, as many will remember from college psychology class, refers to the understanding that things and people continue to exist even when you can’t see or hear them. First documented by child psychologist Jean Piaget, that realization is a necessary milestone in a baby’s brain development, even if it dashes the hilarity of playing peekaboo.

“Object Permanence” is also the title of Christy Mitchell’s current exhibition at Burlington’s S.P.A.C.E. Gallery. She borrows the term to refer to the expectations we had about the world when we were shut-ins during the pandemic and how we experience the world now.

“During COVID, we were confined [at home], but we had this sense that things would still be the same,” she said during a gallery visit. “They’re not, in so many ways.” Read more here.

Installation by Christy Mitchell
June 11 – August 7, 2021

Closing Reception: Friday, August 6 from 6pm – 9pm
Artist Talk: 7:30pm

Set in an early 20th century Victorian style home, ‘Holding Pattern’ imagines conversations and changes to everyday life experienced over many decades and family dynamics. If these walls could talk about the things that we say and what we hide from the public, what would they tell us? Christy Mitchell combines artifacts from the past to tell stories about modern day topics that have affected her, but are also universal. As we are collectively released from the holding pattern of the last year, a critical eye must be trained on what we will take with us and what should be left behind.
