The title “Overlord” might suggest a sci-fi anime fantasy or conjure up religious and political battles of epic or ancient proportions. Yet we currently live in a world in which war is no longer a declared battle between nations; rather it is an endless chess game in which technocrats order robots to kill other technocrats, making reality closer to an "Overlord" sci-fi fantasy than we might care to admit. Such a starting point becomes the curator’s reference and identity, designed to tease out and curate, from otherwise ordinary works of contemporary art, essences and undercurrents that speak to the complexity of manifestations in which one entity might lord their power over another. Look for signs, gestures and intimations of some kind of struggle with a greater or elevated force, be it a drone flying over head, figures falling from the sky, sculpted anatomy inviting you, the viewer, to interact or an overhead perspective on a ritual feast. Taken together, as a grouping of exhibited art works, “Overlord” represents an opportunity to gather as artists and discover a collective narrative.
