The Labor of Learning: An Exhibition by Madeleine Peck Wagner

October 12, 2017 - December 14, 2017

These pieces, wherein pillow forms are used as stand-ins for the artist’s physicality, are simultaneously a matter of conspicuous consumption and transformation. The duality suggested by the pillow form allows for multiple suggestions and meanings – from seduction and comfort, to bulbous grotesquerie. These forms, though sloppy, sidle up to sensuality. In this way, they investigate ideas of expectation, perfection, and realness.

Because really, who wants a tiny, hard pillow?
