ICOSA Collective presents a look at the many ways we, as humans, are haunted.

In Residual, ICOSA Collective artists Katy Horan and Teruko Nimura interpret the concept of hauntings, from unresolved personal and societal experiences that resonate in our present day to variations on the traditional ghosts and spirits found in superstition and folklore. Be it Katy’s sinister figures and Appalachian Haints or Teruko’s investigation of the fear induced “othering” seen in the Japanese American internment, these artists engage the specter of death, grieving, and threat from various points of view. This two person exhibition will include an array of drawing, painting, sculpture, and multi-media installation inviting the viewer to reflect on the echoes of the past that live among us still.
