PLATS, 2015


A plat in the United States is a map, drawn to scale, showing the divisions of a piece of land.A plait, pronounced plat in British English, describes a braid of hair and stems from the old French word pleit, which means to fold.Now, to fold could indicate the portioning of two-dimensional space, a simple crease in a piece of paper. Or it could be a sudden crumbling, a collapse. But as things can fold and be folded, they can unfold as well.In their first collaborative exhibition Poppy Coles and Utah Snyder will present two drawings, one image, and one sculpture.
