On Stranger Ways features Allison Wade, Volker Saul, Michael Pfisterer, Sterling Lawrence and DanDevening; a group of artists from the United States and Germany affiliated with the Chicago gallery deveningprojects + editions. The show, much like the work presented, is an aggregate of carefully selected and loosely connected ideas and materials assembled into a logical whole. Within the work of each artist, it is recognized a desire to order, to make sense of the stuff each finds as they navigate the world. The material-based work reflects strategies inherent to how research, experimentation and consideration lead to a resolute position. The artists are collecting, documenting, isolating, distilling and displaying; they’re also applying very subtle and poetic moves to their process to reveal something newly discovered.
