Mark Booth’s new exhibition, Light Emitting Intestine of Interstitial Largess (L.E.I.O.I.L.) consists of a site-specific wall installation in adhesive vinyl, paintings, drawings, and audio. Though Booth has recently been working with lengthy pre-composed language based audio works and related visual images, ESS is excited to present work that takes a more explicitly improvisational approach. L.E.I.O.I.L. is based around a line of Booth's from a spontaneous text/image drawing from 2012 that reads:
CARTOON FLATTENED DIAMOND / LIGHT EMITTING INTESTINE OF INTERSTITIAL LARGESS / SKI MASK HEM
Interested in what he calls "unknowing," Booth began the present work with this title and derived backward through to content. The piece takes the white of the page and the wall as an invitation to daydream without prejudice and to favor spontaneous invention over fastidious crafting. The result, like most of Booth's work, is a gentle unlocking of the ingrained rationality present in language, drawing, and sound to quietly present complex architectures of new, unknown relations.
