March 6th~ March 28th
2419 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia PA
featuring works by Hao Ni & Bayne Peterson
Fjord presents Accidental Translation, a two-person exhibition of sculpture, video, and works on paper by Hao Ni and Bayne Peterson, that explores formal and conceptual translations and the ways in which ideas and objects mutate across cultures and time periods. Participatory culture creates a frenzy of translations as ideas change hands. When translation is constantly taking place, ideas, histories, and objects take on an increased malleability, potentially approaching formlessness.
