Davy & Kristin McGuire
04.10.2019 – 30.11.2019
“The Dark Dolls House”
“From fairies trapped in jam jars to seductresses kept in dolls-houses to pole dancers hijacking religious iconography, Davy and Kristin McGuire play with conflicted ideas of female victim-hood versus female agency, the innocent aspirations of childhood versus the tainted reality of adulthood, and the sacred versus the sacrilegious. The pieces ask the audience to wonder whether they should gaze in reverence or shame or allow for an all together more nuanced and unresolved perspective.”
Unexpected Curated by Wanrooij Gallery is located in the famous gallery street in Amsterdam (Spiegelgracht 20), and is a space for experimentation from the main Wanrooij Gallery at the KNSM-laan in Amsterdam. It is a platform for artists from the Netherlands and abroad.
