The Soccer Club Club and Land and Sea Dept. are pleased to announce Warm Embrace, a solo exhibition with Chicago artist Stephen Eichhorn, with opening reception Friday, November 16th, from 8-11PM. This is the second installment of a two-part series of Eichhorn's work throughout the month of November, which began at EBERSMOORE in Chicago, earlier this month. The opening reception for Warm Embrace will be celebrated with a special performance by Al Cisneros and Robert AA Lowe of motherfucking OM, along with a DJ set by designers, Creatures of the Wind. The event is free and open to the public, which means your attendance is mandatory! Come blaze out with the subby sounds of the OM Vibratory going all quiet and/or acoustic ( so what if we don't know for sure? Of course there's a plan, but one that exists only in Al's mind before it's executed), and get your visual freak on with the works of Eichhorn. OM kick off their North American tour the very next night at Chicago's Empty Bottle.

Eichhorn's works stems from his ongoing fascination with the cult of plants, touching on sacred rituals and spaces with figurative, abstract and plant-based imagery. Chicago artist Stephen Eichhorn (b.1984) creates delicate hand-cut paper collages from photos of foliage—palm fronds, grasses, leaves and flowers. Quiet and poetic, Eichhorn’s work radiates a complex harmony between the natural and handmade world. His exhibition at the Soccer Club Club consists of of new collage, sculpture and textile works.

The Soccer Club Club is a gallery space on the Northwest side of Chicago, curated and maintained by Drag City.
