Jade TownsendBORN BETWEEN PISS AND SHIT
Tragi-comic allegorical sculptural installation by the New York prop-master.
Oct 6 - Nov 4
opening event :: Sat Oct 6, 7-11pm
Conceptually, Townsend often works with (but is not limited to) symbols inherent to the phenomenon of comfort and apathy or corporate greed and the marginalized and commodified idea of rebellion combined with, for example, the Haymarket Square riots, Robin Hood, or the allegorical tale of the Wizard of Oz.
Visually, Jade evokes an emotional response to hyper realistic figures within the context of overtly fake objects, scenarios, and set style construction, the reaction is often initially comic. Thus, the humorous situations are used to mask, but ultimately serve to intensify tragedy and sociopolitical realities.
