Bruce Conkle - Lament for Middle Kingdom Earth at Jack the Pelican Presents

Jack the Pelican is pleased to present Bruce Conkle - de facto king of the Pacific NW eco art geeks and self-styled "misfit at the crossroads."
In "Lament for Middle Kingdom Earth," he creates a quirky eco-absurd installation that restages contemporary ideas about nature and community in a pre-modern world of fairytale landscape. Conkle is the proverbial stranger come to heal the village with a whacky old prospector's assortment of things, mostly of the detritus kind, and mis-wired ancient magic spells that can never in a million years actually work...
