“Unnecessary Suspicions,” a collection of video art works by Hong Kong-based artist Seeman Ho within an installation by Bryan Zanisnik, borrows from the seemingly non-logical tropes of ancient Chinese mythology to examine our post-logical approach — otherwise known as our explain-away approach — to the increasingly common mental states of panic, anxiety, depression, and schizophrenia in contemporary society. Zanisnik’s installations convey what critic David Duncan describes as “inherited narrative that gets passed down in close-knit families.” Paired with the inherited narrative of ancient Chinese mythology and Seeman Ho’s painstaking attention to texture and patterns in her videos, the exhibit uses imagination — rather than urban physiology — to explore stubbornly incomprehensible mental states . Tonight’s opening night party features performances by Mandarin rock bands The Underground Channel and Torpid Mary, as well as folk songstress Reonda.
