Total 'Recall' — new exhibit explores unsettled memories

East Village-based artist Jessica Frances Grégoire Lancaster is one-half of a new show (along with Pajtim Osmanaj) titled "Recall" that opens tomorrow (Saturday!) on the Lower East Side. 

Here's more via the gallery, Trotter & Sholer
"Recall" presents an exploration of unsettled memory through paintings based on photographs. Memories are notoriously unreliable, yet they are the very fabric of the narrative self. In this exhibition, both artists are exploring events captured in photographs. 
These photographs are used as source material, spliced and reconfigured to construct moments of time both fragmented and imagined. Using oil paint, these artists play with the idea of remembering and the act of making memories. 
"Recall" will be on view at 168 Suffolk St. between Houston and Stanton through Oct. 21. The opening reception tomorrow is from 4-8 p.m. 

Trotter & Sholer is open Tuesday through Saturday, 12 to 6 p.m.
