Rivalry Projects is excited to present The Citric Fragment, a solo exhibition of new works by Chicago-based artist Leonardo Kaplan.

The exhibition presents a collection of new photographic collage paintings that evoke a distrust of affect, belief, and brutality. Utilizing a variety of deconstructions, corruptions, and corrosions of faces and figures, these works reveal a chemically mutated dissonance and contaminated
disconnection to our own cognitive interiority. They highlight the absence of empathy and widespread confusion, mania, and paranoia that has inundated every channel of communication and information of our current moment. Furthermore, the works in this exhibition glare at the logic of violence in assimilation, a crisis of trust, and the awareness (or lack thereof) or artifice.
