The Kenmore: The Slow Game
Sebastien Boncy
Curated by Emily Sloan
Exhibition Dates: March 4 – April 9, 2016
Art League Houston is excited to present The Kenmore: The Slow Game by Sebastien Boncy curated by Emily Sloan in conjunction with FotoFest 2016 Biennial. This exhibition features a selection of small-scale photographs from the artist’s ever growing and uncategorized archive of photographs that find resolution as sequences, installations, publications and other types of image networks. This new work will take the shape of a game, where the audience is asked to Restore the Rules of the Universe by interacting with a set of photographs.

Sebastien Boncy was born and raised in Haiti, and now lives and works in Texas. He received his BFA from the University of Houston, and his MFA from the University of North Texas. Recently, his work has been exhibited at The Oak Cliff cultural center, published in Sugar and Rice magazine, and part of the multi-media presentation Houston No Limits at the Co-Cathedral of The Sacred Heart. His writing currently appears in Not That But This.

Not just another white cube, The Kenmore is a small, cold, mobile exhibition object measuring approximately 36" x 24"x 24". The Kenmore's mission is to keep ideas fresh through the opportunity of a unique exhibition context and the experience of collaborating with an object.
