DAKOTA NOOT – Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad
January 5 @ 12:00 am - February 11 @ 12:00 am
Four Legs Good, Two Legs Bad champions returning to a bestial state. Drawing inspiration from children’s book illustrations and his rural background, Noot explores identity and masculinity. Mutated, feral bodies are transformed into something playful and unashamed. Through each drawing, men embrace their inner pig and the horrors of the body, but ultimately laugh about it. Body horror is turned delicious. The primal is made pure. Stop walking and start crawling.
On View: January 5 – February 11
Closing Event: TBD
