This exhibition presents work by two Bay Area-based artists who share a fascination with the overlooked and the unfamiliar. Elisheva Biernoff investigates possible narratives through trompe l’oeil renderings of found and invented artifacts such as postcards and vintage photographs. Floris Schönfeld explores lost histories and the realm of belief through multifaceted research and installation. Together their work infuses wonder to the unknown, questions the relationship between the uncanny and the authentic, and invites discovery.
