Breathless (Colossus)

When: Sat., June 17, 7-10 p.m. 2017

Breathless (Colossus) is a solo exhibition by Ivy Haldeman that explores gender and corporeality through a single repeating figure in repose––a lady who also happens to be a hotdog. Captured in hushed, elegant moments that evoke the mood of classical odalisques or the Japanese woodblock prints of Kitagawa Utamaro, the figure is executed in gentle pastel tones of acrylic and framed with thin, fluid lines. Unabashedly phallic yet feminine in nature, these candid, often amorous, portraits juxtapose gender binaries and their accompanying associations.
