A. LAURA BRODY – Kali/Medusa
November 9 - December 16
The Goddess Kali represents time, destruction, truth, and fierce love, while the Gorgon Medusa is an emblem of betrayal, fear, and power. Disability is demonized and taken advantage of in our culture. It is seen as a weakness, a tragedy, and something to be feared. Kali tells a different story—that time catches up to us all, and that strength and ferocity are not measured by physical ability. Medusa shows us that what seems monstrous can stem from human betrayal and injustice, and that monsters can be works of beauty.
Kali/Medusa will showcase the finished sculptures of Kali and Medusa along with key elements of their construction process and photographs of their development.
On View: November 9 – December 16
