Tamar Ettun “Eat a Pink Owl” at Fridman Gallery
Fridman Gallery presents Eat a Pink Owl, Tamar Ettun’s second solo exhibition with the gallery.
Ettun’s flamboyant assemblages call for a physical response in the viewer: their sharp-edged limbs and horns point to internalized pain and destructive tendencies; yet their soft bodies and relaxed poses suggest rebirth and pleasure. Pink used to be a boys’ color, becoming a symbol of submissiveness ascribed to women only after World War II. Eat a Pink Owl is about gender fluidity, femmes repossessing pink as a symbol of assertiveness, through bodily forms and primal emotions.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with an essay by Wendy Vogel and an interview with the artist by Barry Schwabsky.
