Futuro Anteriore, the group exhibition curated by Simmy Swinder features works by other Los Angeles-based artists Sarah Danays, Elyse Graham, Gerit Grimm, and Lewis Mauk. The exhibition is on view through March 10 and explores the multifarious concept of the artifact and its transfiguration through time.
Pohl has a solo show in September, a museum project, and several other projects in the works, as well. She is currently working on an interesting visual/audio installation presenting the effects of social media on the human psyche and another evocative work documenting the relationship between married couples and their dinner rituals which spans across generations.
Pohl's works are a beautiful meditation on binding social constructs and the inner monologues that imprison us and oftentimes define us. With a philosophical and academic approach, Pohl's conceptual works are like a mirror reflecting the fabric of our everyday lives, and the fabric just keeps unraveling until what it reveals is something not ugly or pretty, but honest.
