Downtown…Stop by the another gallery at the Bendix Building. Tiger Strikes Asteroid Los Angeles (TSALA) debuts “Double-body,” collage drawings and a new performance by Cindy Rehm. The gallery hosted a reception on Saturday January 14, 2023. The exhibition will be on view through February 5, 2023.

The exhibition considers the generative possibilities of the trance state through references to automatic writing, dermatographia, and narratives produced through the body. Rehm uses imagery sourced from turn-of-of-the-century books on diseases of the female body, nature, animals, and contemporary fashion photography. Cats appear in many of the works in conversation with Hélène Cixous’ ideas around the cat as a creative conduit, a bridge between the visible and invisible realms. Rehm also looks to the work of Carolee Schneemann, who saw the cat as a medium (a material and a channel) as she explored interspecies relationships and telepathic communications in life and after death.

On view: January 14 – February 5, 2023
