KAL SPELLETICH’s solo exhibition will be held at the JACK HANLEY GALLERY until August 12th.
Before flying was a means to an end, it was a sensation. The perennial struggle to fly aimed for the deep-rooted joy of weightlessness, a release from our own corporeality, and the all-too-human satisfaction of “touching the sky”. The flying machine made the human superhuman. For Kal Spelletich, flight’s future promise may be gone but not forgotten – Where are the jetpacks? The flying cars, escape pods, gravity boots, moon colonies? This is supposed to be the future. Where’s My Jetpack?! takes us back to a moment of invention. Or perhaps, reminds us that its time is now.
