Catya Plate: Clothespin Tarot
September 22, 2010 - December 4, 2010
Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director
A Featured Artist Project displaying the work of Catya Plate.
This project comprises a series of original drawings and an artist book as well as an animated film. Since 2003 Plate has been working on a series of 78 watercolor and pencil drawings inspired by the 78 cards of the traditional tarot. Clothespins have always played a key role in Plateís work and in this exhibition they become Clothespin Freaks; figures who, made of clear plastic clothespins, dollís body parts and sewn pieces, are the real heroes in this subversive Tarot adventure. The installation features a new animated film, The Reading, which is a culminating artist project to this body of work.
