The Slow Game by Sebastien Boncy opening at Art League Houston on March 4

The Kenmore presents: The Slow Game by Sebastien Boncy
Curated by Emily Sloan in conjunction with FotoFest 2016 Biennial
On view at Art League Houston, 1953 Montrose Blvd., Houston, TX 77006
Opening reception on Friday, March 4 from 6-9pm, on view through April 9, 2016

This exhibition features a selection of small-scale photographs from the artist’s ever growing and uncategorized archive of photographs that find resolution as sequences, installations, publications and other types of image networks. This new work will take the shape of a game, where the audience is asked Restore the Rules of the Universe by playfully interacting with a set of photographs while teasing out the implications of time both for the medium itself and the bodies manipulating the images.


Sebastien Boncy was born and raised in Haiti, and now lives and works in Texas. He received his BFA from the University of Houston, and his MFA from the University of North Texas. Recently, his work has been exhibited at The Oak Cliff cultural center, published in Sugar and Rice magazine, and part of the multi-media presentation Houston No Limits at the Co-Cathedral of The Sacred Heart. His writing currently appears in Not That But This.

Not just another white cube, The Kenmore is a small, cold, mobile exhibition object measuring approximately 36" x 24"x 24". The Kenmore's mission is to keep ideas fresh through the opportunity of a unique exhibition context and the experience of collaborating with an object.
