Six impossible things before breakfast
May 3rd - July 7th, 2018
Crossing Collective is pleased to present ‘Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast’, a group exhibition including works from Alex Ebstein, Susan Klein, Adam Eddy and Allison Reimus, on view from May 3rd to July 7th.
"There's no use trying," Alice said: “One can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
This exhibition takes its title from an excerpt of Lewis Carroll’s famed Through the Looking Glass, in which a young Alice falls through a mirror and finds herself too large and then too small in a world that contradicts usual paths of logic. Like the world beyond the rabbit hole, quantum theory frequently disobeys the theories of classical physics, an idea that fascinated and perplexed Carroll, as evident in much of his writing. Even the presence of the Cheshire Cat as Alice’s enigmatic antagonist is almost certainly a nod to the notorious Schrodinger’s Cat experiment, in which a cat was theoretically proven to be both dead and alive simultaneously.
