All Sorts of Remedies

Herbert Pfostl's new exhibit "All Sorts of Remedies" kicks off at Observatory in Brooklyn this Saturday, Nov. 21. (Opening is at 7PM; exhibition runs until January 8, 2010.)

Herbert -- creator of Blind Pony Books and the Paper Graveyard and a friend of AJRMS from the beginning -- kindly shared this preview of the show. Here's a description:
Small paintings as parables of plants and animals and old stories of black robbers and white stags. Fragments on death like mirrors from a black sleep in the forests of fairy tales. All stories from the dust of the dead in fragments and footnotes like melodies of heartbreak and north and night and exploration – breakdowns. About saints with no promise of heaven and lost sailors forgotten and the terribly lonely bears. The unknown, the ugly – and the odd. Collected grand mistakes, noble errors from many sources. Sinking signals – conscious or not – sonatas and last letters and great insults. The impossible tears in landscapes of ocean or stranded whales. A going far back to coals and cruelties and sobbing like songs in whiskey and blood. Of soldiers' last letters and all seven seas. With pirates and wars and prayers in holes in the ground. Of fallen women and orphaned children and drowned slaves and burned saints.
About the venue: "Observatory is a new presentation and exhibition space in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. The space seeks to present programming residing at the interstices of learning and amusement, art and science, and history and curiosity."

See you there if I can drag my ass out of Philly for once.
