About the Exhibition

Lea Devon Sorrentino’s solo exhibition is a whimsical installation that delves into the essence of mundane tasks that form the fabric of adult life, transforming them into a spectacle of absurdity. “Tinker Tape Tedium” is an ode to the silent battles waged behind the veneer of stability. A celebratory parade-for-one, commemorative pennants and symbolic awards intersect trauma, humor, and the choreography of the everyday. Come be a spectator where the mundane takes center stage, and witness a celebration of life’s ordinary moments that take monumental effort.
