OPENING RECEPTION | "More than a feeling" work by Caroline Claflin and Noel Fetting-Smith

Opening Reception: 12/3 6-9pm
Exhibition: 12/3 - 1/1

Caroline Claflin and Noel Fetting-Smith collaborate in More than a feeling, a show opening at Comfort Station in December. Artwork will include prints, video, sculpture, painting, and animation.

The two will show original works inspired by the rhetoric surrounding fact vs. feeling in 2016, a year marked by a historic lack of empathy and understanding in the public arena. In an age of Orwellian data mining, the parroting of biased information is an inevitable condition of our digital life. We see what pleases us and our opinions are reinforced by algorithm. 

Influenced by the history of Comfort Station as a restroom, Claflin and Fetting-Smith mount a one-man, one-woman show - Claflin and Fetting-Smith will work within this binary to reflect and the nature of bias present in all aspects of our digital and non-digital lives.

Caroline Claflin and Noel Fetting-Smith met over ten years ago in Providence, Rhode Island and have collaborated in the past to create video, installation, and performative artworks together. Claflin, 29, is a Massachusetts native whose work encompasses video, animation, drawings and prints. She graduated with her BFA in animation from the Rhode Island School of Design before going on to earn an MFA at the University of Pennsylvania. Fetting-Smith, 29, studied painting at Brown University and just recently completed an MFA in sculpture at SAIC here in Chicago. His work examines social advocacy and educational reform through sculpture and performance.
