Amanda Mehl “koRban”
This event has ended.
This exhibition is about the physical material nature of sculptures, objects and idols in the realm of the spiritual. The sculptures in this installation are decadent, vain and shamelessly ornamental. They combine fragmented biblical references and Ancient Near East paraphernalia with trash culture, cheap dollar store goods, imported toys from the orient and glitzy plastic trinkets and gems. There is a prominent macho presence in her sculptures, which may be observed in erected phallic structures, while other work is depicted as a “koRban” the ritual animal sacrifice which was offered to purify the corrupt in the ancient times of Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The result is a scene of graphic but alluring imagery of flesh, blood, splendor and sparkle invading the space.
