Kala Art Institute’s latest off-site exhibit is a group show at the Berkeley Central Arts Passage (2055 Center St.) titled Belewe, which roughly translates in folk etymology to “to betray.” The show brings together artists who investigate things that stray from the norm, venturing into the interstitial mental spaces that are so often ignored. One of the most eye-catching works is Nyeema Morgan’s “Untitled” (from the installation I, Rhinoceros), which features three cast resin hands emerging from a patterned wall and holding out white ceramic vases. Morgan, who is based in New York, is interested in epistemological hierarchies and the way that cultural knowledge is passed on to viewers through artifacts. Julia Goodman’s hand-made calendar is made from rough paper pulp with protrusions that represent the moon cycles of the months following her father’s death. Ben Bigelow’s contribution is a startling large-scale light box that features a cherry pie smashed against glass, effectively pranking the viewer with a pie to the face. Other artists include Matt Chavez, Veronica Graham, Boris Scherbakov, and Lucy van Limburg Stirum. Altogether, the works lead the viewer through an exciting array of unusual observations.
