Breaking the Prairie is Koak’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles. “Prairie is not a term that seems to need breaking, not some bit of grassland, unknown and freshly wild, but rather a thing already tamed. To me the Prairie is barely a place of nature at all, not a field of today’s land that we could visit. In fact, it seems barely a place of the physical world. Instead, the Prairie is a vision, a fictional utopia of Americana or the long dead dream of vacancy waiting to be grabbed. The Prairie is a thought with its back already broken.” - Koak. Breaking The Prairie is on view through January 19 at Ghebaly Gallery 2245 East Washington Boulevard Los Angeles. photographs by Lani Trock
