Erased from a True Story @ Eastern Projects Gallery
Jun 8 – Jul 13 all-day

 

Opening Reception: June 8th, 2019 6 pm -10 pm

Eastern Projects Gallery is pleased to present “Erased from a True Story”,  a solo exhibition by Chance Cooper.

“As moments turn into memories, we stash them in the closet of our mind. Some are draped over hangers, visible with every peek, waiting to be flicked through and tried on again. Others are neatly folded, layered inside a drawer, sharing a compartmentalized feeling. The rest are thrown on the floor and kicked to a corner, only to get lost and collect haze.

Even the clearest head doesn’t have enough room in their closet to go shopping for memories every new trend. Eventually our minds have to choose which ones to let go of. When it comes time to clean out the closet, there are some ‘good times’ even Goodwill won’t take. Unfortunately, those must be thrown away.

Until then, this body of work hangs the memories that will be erased from a true story.”

– Chance Cooper
