Mikey Yates - Boomerang
If Mikey Yates’ first solo exhibit at Taymour Grahne Projects expressed lockdown sentiments in the form of Love Letters, then Boomerang is an extended diary entry.
Wrought with careful observations, pauses, and quiet deliberations, Yates invokes the reflections, shadows, and artifacts that haunt the physical and mental terrain of the places we call home. Reminding us that though families and loved ones may move or grow apart, the true construction of home supersedes physical structure.
In Boomerang, Yates pays homage to the questions asked but not spoken and the memories and objects we choose to make sacred—the pieces of home that we return to time and time again.
