A Conversation Between Body and Mind was a two-person show focused on the dialogue between the subconscious and physical self. How does one make a decision and act upon it? Bay Area artists, Sofie Ramos and Stephanie Sherriff examine the act of decision-making by creating work that was in constant flux. Neither of the artists are interested in creating a final product, but are instead continuously manipulating their work. A three-way conversation was formed between Ramos, Sherriff and the space as they responded and transformed Incline Gallery’s atypical architecture through installation and projections.
With the continuous increase of rent, limitations in space, and their work often seen as “unsellable,” new media and installation artists face a declining ability to survive in contemporary San Francisco. That being said, we wanted to express how grateful we were to have this opportunity to work with Ramos and Sherriff and be able to see them work in their element.
A Conversation Between Body and Mind was co-curated by Stephanie Wu and myself.
