The eight artists who participated in Promises all made work that seemed to be somewhere in between one thing and another, presenting a potential of continually becoming something else. For example, Chris Hanson and Hendrika Sonnenberg’s Fruit Bowls reside somewhere between sculpture and photography, while Joe Scanlan’s work, Coffer, is both a practical, functional object and the realization of more formally motivated ideas. Daniel Olson’s short performances collected in Philosophical Moments puncture the film noir ambience of the video with a kind of quizzical prankishness that underscores the provisional nature of expectations, and experience. The promise of these works is in their potential for just such unexpected outcomes.
