Art Wall: Xylor Jane
August 16, 2023 - January 7, 2024
Known for detailed and colorful representations of numerical patterns and sequences, Xylor Jane has created an art wall based on her calendar #11, 1/6/21–6/26/26 for her first museum presentation in Northern California. The pyramidal calendar is organized by the fifth palindromic triangular number, 666—a number with myriad positive and negative connotations. For BAMPFA’s Art Wall, Jane centered and enlarged the portion of the three-part calendar that refers to the time period when the work will be on view at BAMPFA. A black grid outlines the color-coded days of the week, while hand-drawn notations mark full moons, equinoxes, and solstices to queer and cross-reference the relationship of natural cycles with European constructions of time. The center form on the wall is flanked by the two complementary triangles from the calendar, which have been rotated and set at unique scales that suggest a sense of disjointed movement much like the relationships between the many types of time the calendar represents.
