Mike Paré: New Believers, April 28 – May 19, 2012. Installation view. Springfield, Oregon: Ditch Projects, 2012.
For his first solo show, Ditch Projects, Springfield, New Mexico artist Mike Paré presents works on paper that are explorations of cultural and material anomalies. Starting with the topic of subcultures, Paré focuses in on the material culture and narrative of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh Movement, which was based in eastern Oregon from 1980-1985. In this work, constellations of Rajneesh’s narrative expand beyond rational investigation, and mutate into entirely new forms.
