Earth laid Earth in an Earthen trough,
Then had Earth of Earth Earth enough.

Virtuous Beasts, an exhibition by Kalaija Mallery. Exploring notions of a post-catastrophe “agri-cult”, Mallery imagines communal living and spiritual cultivation at the end of Capitalism. Drawing from religious and rural aesthetics, she alludes to a morally complicated future. Found and assembled objects paired with drawings and video pursue the notion that freedom is as abundant and fruitful a virtue as the Earth itself.
All Thesis presentations will take place at 2:30 PST the Friday of the exhibition via Zoom
