Dain Mergenthaler Presents "Material Desirez": Open House Mixer says
Material Desirez is composed of intersecting installations that pose questions rather than answer them. Are materials desired, are the materials desirable, or are the materials desiring something else? Dain Mergenthaler grants materials agency in this re-purposed bedroom.

The materials that Mergenthaler animates are not neutral: they are of a certain disposition. Plastic gems, pom poms, peony roses, and confetti work in concert to convey a sense of saccharin, tragic decadence.

The artist conjures parties and camp, witchcraft, life and death, and Miley Cyrus in a single bedroom with walk-in closet to question the parallels between these disparate forces.

Join us on Friday, September 4th from 5:30-8:30p for the open house mixer as Dain unveils his new work in the POST-HAB Gallery at the Number House.

We'll have brews & tunes, all we need is you!

See Mergenthaler's work for yourself: Material Desirez will be on display through the month of September and can be viewed during gift shop hours at the Number House.
