"Thou Shall Not Covet" is a solo exhibition of a year long project by found object artist Jesse r Lentz. Begining on Feb 17, 2016, the artist's 25th birthday, and culminating on Feb 17, 2017, the project consists of 52 photos of collections for each week (Thursday to Thursday). Objects like candy, tiny horses, heroin needles, $10, a piece of PsychoBarn, and much more, are arranged and placed in a timeline of the detritus of the life around us.
For the opening reception we will be celebrating not only the end of the project, but the artist's 26th birthday. Viewers will be invited to leave behind objects to be collected for the next project. Objects will be collected from donation box daily over the duration of the installation Feb 24th through March 10th.
