Hardly Soft presents False Deadlines II, an exhibition featuring new works by artists Amber Cobb and Mario Zoots. Together they face their failure to fall under the illusion of artificial constraints, fake closing dates, and target objectives. In a world full of impossible predictions and arbitrary urgency the duo continues to do what they do best: play and poke at the underlying tension of their collaboration.
