Carmen Kass – Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin
INEZ VAN LAMSWEERDE, VINOODH MATADIN AND EUGENE VAN LAMSWEERDE
March 14 – May 3, 2008 Opening: March 13, 2008, 7-9 pm
The show is the third installment of an ongoing series entitled The Now People which began in 2003 at the Matthew Marks Gallery in New York.
Part Three: The Women includes some of the sculptural works from Life on Earth as well as an installation entitled The Seance, which is a collection of silk screened photographs pierced by metal as to actualize thoughts, energies, and emotions into a physical tangibility. Three large scale new photo works entitled Woman 1, 2 and 3 have been made specifically for this show that investigate the erotic portrait by means of sculpting Carmen Kass’ face into a phallic shaped object.
This show contains only images of women inspired by new and old female archetypes: the feminist, the object, the demon, the earth mother, the trickster, the shaman and the innocent. Andreas Grimm Gallery:
