At Meta House, Everything in its right place, an exhibition by Christopher Bryce Morris Wise.  “I’ve always been drawn to the perplexing mathematics of interpersonal relationships. Recently, I couldn’t help but see everything and everyone as basic shapes – some that fit, some that don’t.  Everyone angular, quartered. These shapes arrange-interact or overlap-in strange geometry. An ever-changing design that becomes a puzzle to solve, a spell to chant mantra-like alone. Solitary and separated, we exist in increasingly isolated spaces – turning inward. The square of an apartment, rectangular bed peeking at a door, the dull glow of screens reduce into even smaller vistas. Life a serrated keyhole that cuts ourselves out or in. We mystify demystification and conjure ourselves: the flat shapes that remain.”

Transit, an exhibition by Marie Le Mounier and Studio Images, at the French Institute, opens today, Tuesday 16.  “It enters into her concerns regarding the portrayal of reality, in which she shows people questioning the inner working of their urban environment, which they constantly keep passing through.”  There will, however, be no public opening due to health security protocols.
