For over a year I worked with local cafe proprietor Jonathan Legare as the artist-in-residence of his southeast cafe and community resource center, LEGARE'S. The title of my graduate exhibition, The Idiosyncratic Element is the Precursor to Change, is an aphorism authored by Legare himself. Acting as an experimental documentary installation, the show uses Legare's life and times as a starting point, and engages his particular interests. These include the novels of Balzac, guns, custom motorcycles, philosophy, and the aphorisms of his customers, among others.
One of the pieces in the show was Jonathan's leather jacket. Read the card below to find out more. Notice the note that was found in the pocket. It was an invitation to a party over ten years ago.
