She Unlimited
Solo Show, 106 Green, June-July 2015

In She Unlimited, six women embody intimately familiar female personas, performing an investigative relationship with them. Once conjured, the persona’s fit may be surprising: like a deja vu glove, a seamless transition; or, bulkily, somewhere on the spectrum toward needs alteration. She bops, flexes muscles, puts on attitude. She sells you things. She tries things out for a spell. And now she’s really feeling herself.

At the show’s core is the content produced for the artist’s online work VISTAS, a virtual glossy of enacted gestures and glances. In each woman’s portrait, numerous looping and overlapping videos play simultaneously against a backdrop of supporting images, design elements, and sounds. In one “room” the women mingle, playing sisters, teammates, and rivals in many fractured instances. Lifted from this navigable context, the elements take on different forms and functions in the exhibition space: reconfigured videos, photographs, busts; sampling, flattening, and extruding.

These new configurations constitute an expansion of offerings consistent with her ample qualifications, promising a push toward a broadened panorama.

She just can’t - and won’t - stop.
