A Needle Walks into a Haystack is an exhibition about our habits and our habitats, and the objects, images, relationships and activities that constitute our immediate surroundings. It is about effecting larger questions facing contemporary life and art from an intimate and tangible scale that’s within everyday reach. The artists in this exhibition disrupt many of the conventions and assumptions that usually prescribe the way we live our lives. They attack the metaphors, symbols, and representations that make up their own environment, replacing them with new meanings and protocols: bureaucracy becomes a form of comedy; silence becomes a type of knowledge; domesticity becomes a place of pathology; inefficiency becomes a necessary vocation; and delinquency becomes an everyday routine.
