Oxbow Delirious Dreaming Pugilist and Other Stories , Klara Glosova
Closing Reception: Saturday, July 14, 6 – 9pm
“The cornerstone of this project is a small print of a brick wrapped in brown butcher paper and named “Pugilist”. In fact, picture two bricks. The two main characters-the stars of the show-are a pair of bricks, one for each hand. They are not particularly stunning, monumental or impressive in their presence, nevertheless their weight is considerable – they can be used as a support or to hold things down, to break through or to build with. With these qualities in mind I want to build a new narrative for what it means to be a woman fighter.” -Klara Glosova
