Ulterior Gallery is pleased to present "Night Bloom Central," the first NY solo exhibition of works by the Danish-Japanese artist Silas Inoue. The exhibition opens on September 9 with an opening reception for the artist from 6 to 8 pm, and the artist will be present at the gallery for this occasion.
  
Night Bloom Central" can be seen as an undefined, imaginary place—maybe a train station with no geographical location, a futuristic garden, or a city inhabited by non-human entities. At the same time, this title also points to the unique ability of mold organisms to thrive in dark environments. Inoue’s first intimate experience with these organisms were caused by a flood at his studio, which led to the growth of mold on some of his stored works. Cohabitating with the mold, he saw the beauty in these organisms—a beauty thriving in his studio that was not under his control. 

Inoue uses a wide range of materials including bronze, wood, concrete, as well as more unconventional mediums, such as sugar, cooking oil, microbes, and carefully selected trash from the streets of Copenhagen and New York City. "Infrastructure," one of the works on view, resembles an imaginary cityscape—the inner compositions built of wood and inhabited by hundreds of different fungal species, which are cultivated by smearing dairy products onto the wood. The work, and the exhibition "Night Bloom Central" in general, speaks about the networks and interconnectedness that exists between organisms, enviroments and civilizations, both strange and familiar, that reside in a delicate state of non-human otherness.
