Body Passages_4632-2_Photo by Marya Spont-Lemus

This photo shows part of the gallery. On the right-hand side of the image, a long white table stretches from the foreground toward the back wall, with the work “Lazo 018” in the foreground, “Exquisite Nomads” at the other end, and a few sculptural objects in between. “Lazo 018” is comprised of four thin, serpentine, clay objects in two pairs (one of oblong loops leaning against each other without intersecting; one of a non-looped piece reaching into and up through a closed loop). Beyond the table and along the back wall are several two-dimensional works (leaning against or hung on the wall) and three-dimensional works (on small shelves or the floor). On the left-hand side of the image, in the background, are a tall pedestal with three objects and a short platform (in partial view) with three objects visible.

An installation shot of part of Xavier Toubes’ show, “Descriptions Without a Place.PushMoon4,” at the Chicago Cultural Center (all works low-fire clay, glazes and lustres, from 2013-present). In the foreground is “Lazo 018” from 2018. Photo by Marya Spont-Lemus.
