Mandy Greer's Honey and Lightening opens at Roq La Rue on January 14th and gosh darn it looks exquisite. Kirsten Anderson, owner of Roq sent over images of photographs that will be on display. They are mirrored images of Mandy's installation/conceptualized costumes that that will also accompany on site installations. The headdresses and outfits you see will also be on display in the show. Decadent, right? I'd love to go & see it all come together. In Mandy's words:
Honey and Lightening is a show of installation chambers, sculptures of talismanic birds and a series of staged photographs all revolving around examining the mercurial nature of human desire. The substances honey and lightening both have literary, mythical and archetypal references to the occurrence and evolution of desire and it's fading. I see one as the slow ooze of pleasure and the other as the dangerous, uncontrollable and inexplicably instant occurrence of magnetism between two bodies.
I'm hoping to get a mini q&a together with Mandy...so stay tuned for that this week! Also, to see more of Mandy's gorgeous world be sure to check out her flickr site.
