Mannequin’s Daughter at Gamut Gallery
Posted January 17, 2017
We are so excited and honored to be working with the wonderful people at Gamut Gallery again! We did our show Stork and Raven last July at Gamut Gallery as well. Mannequin’s Daughter will be a one night only event as part of the closing of the Valure exhibit. Both the exhibit and our performance explore the themes of feminine beauty and identity. Mannequin’s Daughter explores these themes through the eyes of Iris, who – from viewer perspective – struggles with an eating disorder, but claims what she truly devours is the inorganic items of our modern consumerist culture. Juxtaposing the concept of rampant materialism in our modern age, the performance examines how sexuality is used as a marketing tool to sell products to consumers at the expense of contributing to the misrepresentation of the “ideal” body type.
#Valure Exhibit Finale + Performance Friday, February 17th
Finale 7-11pm, Performance at 8:30pm / $10 admission
