Jenn Smith talks Evangelicana, archival fevers and painting — all on view in her exhibition Soup Kite Laser Church at Flatland — with Brian and Jesse. Mining her evangelical Christian background, Jenn’s work offers a unique view into the material and ephemeral histories of these communities, bringing to light their pamphlets, the pro wresting ads, the rock groups, the felt board fuzzies, usb kitsch, etc. with a deft touch that’s playful, humane and mysterious all at once. Oh, and fifty-one books about Christian puppetry (in the work Fifty-one Books About Christian Puppetry).

Mike is a sculptor, performer, writer, drawer, animator polymath type whose work deals with work; with money; with personal history; with material reuse, refuse and refusal; with mess and form; with the funny and the sad.
