Permanent Parabasis @ Gallery 99 Curated by Lee Pivnik & Gabe Cohen  A burned-out storefront is a heterotopic chronicle of decay and renewal. The movement of a sudden fire is indexed on timbers while attempts at rehabilitation reveal shifts in industrial methods and aesthetic values.
It is apparent that the original construction has undergone multiple failed attempts to coax the commercial unit into domestic functionality. These traces of activity bear the weight of unfulfilled desire. Permanent Parabasis proposes that the architectural renovation of Gallery 99 be taken as an analogy.
One could imagine the 20th century avant-garde as a force of combustion and the confused aftermath as an ensuing project of architectural reconciliation.
A series of attempts are made to redefine the terms of engagement.
The works in the show take permission from the tenants' absence to dress things up to their liking.
