Please join homebase on Sunday, July 7 from 5-8 pm for our zine release, featuring images and poetry by Katelyn Nicole Kilburg in conjunction with her exhibition “I haven’t forgotten anything despite how I pretend to.”
The zine we’ll be releasing in conjunction with Katelyn Kilburg’s is adaptly titled “I haven’t forgotten anything despite how I pretend to” . This twelve page zine is intended to reflect and share as part mini chapbook, photo-journal, and weaves in graphic elements inspired by a long summer abroad in which feelings of loss and gain were explored.
“I haven’t forgotten anything despite how I pretend to” was published using risograph methods by Katelyn Nicole Kilburg at Outlet in Northeast Portland in July 2019.
We will have light snacks & refreshments to enjoy during this event.
Katelyn Kilburg is a multidisciplinary visual artist, combining film with graphic design elements, and often written word.
This piece is about the ways in which memories warp over time, and the changes to emotions that come from such warping. Here the flowers have meaning and stand as an offering to the humility within the act of devotion, even to that which has gone. Should you puncture one of the many balloons, you may find clues that something soft is always still close under the surface, no matter what is outwardly feigned. Undercurrents of greek lore flow through the work, serving to tell stories both very old, and stories quite new and close to the artist.
Right off of Hawthorne blvd, homebase is part gallery, part performance venue, and part backyard. With a primary focus on rotating mural and visual art exhibitions programming, homebase also aims to be a collaborative space for both portland and non-portland based artists, and existing arts organizations.
Named for our desire to foster a familiar and welcoming environment, a “home” away from home, homebase also hopes to serve as the literal home base point for future offshoot ventures supported by the gallery.
