Kathleen Henderson: Bluebeard & Other Poolings
1206 Maple Ave, Ste 1005, Los Angeles, CA 90015
May 14, 6 PM - 9 PM — ends Jul 02, 2022
Artist Kathleen Henderson’s new exhibition, “Bluebeard and Other Poolings” peers through the looking glass to explore the inner lives of humanity calculating an impending apocalypse. For twenty years Henderson has fashioned blob-like ghosts and beings to expose narcissism, vanity, and feelings of powerlessness in the face of mounting challenges that threaten society and existence itself. Animated in oil stick on paper, her figures assemble in an array of poses that reveal our inability as a collective to gather behind solutions, instead choosing to cheer on chaos or focus on how photogenic we’ll appear in insurrection selfies.
