From the press release:
The exhibition features the video work, Plumb, where a three-dimensional blob stirs and slowly gathers momentum, losing and gaining it in an effort to lift off. A series of sculptures with fleshy folds, titled Low Rise, appear exposed and on display. The neighboring line drawings, Fenced Fatties, present a possible backstory for the sculptures. Slung across the gallery is a pennant flag. Part object and part drawing, it is a gesture of fatigued optimism, which is amplified by the slow plodding of intermittent parade marches.
Krebs writes, “It’s embarrassing to continue to search for breathless enchantment when your ass crack is showing.” And yet To Beat the Band is ultimately a celebration of that impulse. However naïve or doomed, susceptibility to hope is infinitely preferable to a world without it. Krebs’ gestures are presented with humor and some apprehension, but above all with tender regard.
