Moon White Moth is a group show focused around the idea of the nocturnal self. Issues of transformation, secrecy and opacity bleed into the architecture of the club renegotiating the limits of the self and that which is known. The dark nurtures spaces for experimentation and fantasies, apparitions and hybrids forming a stage that fights restrictions, amplifying our sense of possibility. Like moths flying towards the light in a fearless cycle of death and regeneration, the anonymity of the night becomes an origin for transcendence, allowing bodies to exist without being directly looked at, granting permission to perpetually transform.

Moon White Moth opens Saturday, July 2nd - 8PM
