Demos Oneiroi is a multimedia installation concerned
with the variegated structure of transcendence. Demos Oneiroi takes as
its foundation an intractable phenomenological ennui, a self-bored
circular hermeneutics and a persistent dryness around the cuticles.
Demos Oneiroi is implanted in the dank ground of an unnamed swamp
and is passing the time inventing games of self-estrangement to be
played out among the strip-malls. Demos Oneiroi is searching for desire
in the mire.
Epoxy presents a show that is thematically
divided between its interior and exterior spaces. Inside the gallery
space proper, Pia Love-Toribio creates a lucid phantasmagoria through
which she explores a personal symbology of simple geometric forms.
Outside the gallery, Andrea Williams creates an artificial "remoteness"
for participating audience members in which she plays with the concept
of oracular self-knowledge. The works are united in their attempt to
serve as a portal to something beyond the socially-conditioned bounds of
experienced reality. Please join us Friday May 30th 2014, between 7pm -
10 pm and also June 6 for the FFSH between 6pm-10 pm.
Marcile Powers is an artist local to the St.
Petersburg area who recently had a show in Rome, Italy. She will be

show. Joshua Kreithen will be there playing guitar and possibly an
Eastern European folk singer if we're lucky. Please come out to the new
authentic Italian Bakery in St. Petersburg to see the work.
