OLFACTORY SHOW BY SNOWBLINK
PAINTINGS BY DAVE EGGERS

5 to 8pm (performance at 6:30pm)
584 Chetwood St, Oakland
(Enter thru the gate on right side of the house)
Join us to celebrate a series of images created by Snowblink and Terri Loewenthal that explore the unpredictable yet cyclical currents of desire. This series of 10 images illuminate 10 songs on Snowblink’s latest release, Returning Current.
Snowblink and Terri spent a day and night in the deep-end, playing with currents, dynamic movement in salt water, the energy between bodies, electroluminescent wire and light. This series is what emerged. The images live in a set of offset-printed postcards, the second in a postcard series that began with Terri’s Petite Sensation, released in 2015.
Daniela Gesundheit of Snowblink will be on site to play an ‘aromatic' mini-set while the audience reclines, blindfolded. Scent artist and founder of the Institute for Art and Olfaction (Los Angeles) Saskia Wilson-Brown has created a custom scent for each song.
Also on view are paintings by author and artist, Dave Eggers. Eggers’ drawings and paintings feature strange, powerful images of animals and plaintive text. The resulting effect is oddly spiritual, often profound, and sometimes even humorous.
Until now, only The Chetwood visiting residents have had access to this on-site work, and we are excited to have an opportunity to share these paintings with our community.
