By/Of, Nudie Suits, The Creepers, Electronic Duo Eric Fernandez & Misha Shuster

Mana Contemporary Chicago and High Concept Laboratories Presents Jenna Lyle's Large-scale work, By/Of, for corporeally-amplified artists, electronics, and projection. Lyle and her collaborators explore the emotional remembrance of architectural shape and the experience of space as integral to one’s perception of self and community. A project revolving around the extended voice as it relates to contact, closeness, and the sound of sculptural movement, the work’s materials and dramatic arc convey a narrative of community and decay.
