After a three year hiatus to explore and develop new works and philosophies independent of the collaboration, TindelMichi reunite in their latest exhibition Relics on display at the Marietta | Cobb Museum of Art. Visitors to the exhibit will be met by the heavily layered large scaled painted works, sculptural works and sound installations that explore the ghosts of a regions haunted history and remixed narratives historical and personal.
TindelMichi is John Tindel and Michi Meko a collaborative duo working together to create a unique aesthetic influenced by the Southern region of the United States.Their work is a direct reflection of growing up in a newer, urbanized, and more racially sensitive South than of the past. Still haunted by history’s ghost, their interest is in narratives, symbols and objects. Graphic painting styles and site specific installations commingle with heritage, rituals, daily visual stimuli and design to collage the imagination into dreamlike landscapes. They have combined their vernaculars to develop cryptic phrases and developed a catalog of symbolic elements that continue to appear in the works. Under the guise of humor and wit, they closely examine and question stories and objects that harness the powers of racial division in America.
