INDIA EVANS: Rimembri Ancora?
India Evans: Rimembri Ancora will be on view at Heskin Contemporary from October 22nd through November 28th, 2009. A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday October 22nd, from 6-9 pm.
India Evans: Rimenbri Ancora? explores feminine identity with romantic and playful collage. Working from erotic vintage postcards, Ms. Evans places the female body in surreal, dreamlike narratives. The artist incorporates poetic texts, painting and drawing, and an array of items such as sequins, lace, and feathers, to engage with their former splendor and history. In her words, the objects are a “vocabulary of feelings”, piecing together and situating beauty while viewing the discarded and abandoned with a renewed eye.
Evans collects her materials by combing flea markets in New York and previously in Italy where she studied at the Lorenzo de’ Medici and Accademia di Belle Arti. She has had three solo exhibitions in Rome and has exhibited in several group exhibitions in New York and throughout the U.S. and Europe. This is the artist’s first exhibition at Heskin Contemporary.
