Kayle Karbowski: Everybody Has a Birthday & Almost Everybody Has a Palm


Everybody Has a Birthday & Almost Everybody Has a Palm is the manifestation of a parallel world which has experienced a major spacetime disruption. The resulting convergence of multiple realities has a profound effect on the beings who experience it; they have gained the ability to see the past, present and future all at once.

In this exhibition, Karbowski blurs the line(s) between astronomical phenomena and her favorite pseudosciences to explore the magic of being human despite the seemingly trivial nature of our existence. Through sculpture, embroidery, moving image and sound, she asks us to reimagine how we came to be and our choice to continue onward.

“In some ways, Everybody Has a Birthday & Almost Everybody Has a Palm is a collection of origin stories. I’m sort of creating my own religion using feminism, queerness, astronomy, quantum mechanics and the pseudosciences I secretly believe in. I guess it’s not really a secret anymore. I know somewhere, there is a universe where the patriarchal laws of this world don’t apply, and if I can’t find it, I’ll just keep creating it.”
