Lonnie Taylor: A Practice of Rest and Release
The Frank-Ratchye Project Space presents A Practice of Rest and Release by Studio Artist Lonnie Taylor (she/they).
A Practice of Rest and Release is a series of pieces by Lonnie Taylor based on death rituals, in a celebratory context. In contrast to the narrative of people sitting with potential regret at the end of their lives, Lonnie is reflecting on the wonder of being reborn multiple times. A featured altar is accompanied by 3-4 four unreleased songs that will be edited and updated throughout the duration of the exhibition, and audiences are encouraged to interact with a honey jar. The symbolism/act is a reference to an altar call that was traditional in the artist’s upbringing, where folks were given an open space to lay down/sit with/release their burdens.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lonnie Taylor is a multidisciplinary creative that plays with sound, video, words, and food. Her current practice is centered around building a deeper trust in their intuition. Her hope/goal is to shed a need to “prove” anything with their art and to surrender to the stickiness of the making process.
