Honey Ramka is pleased to present Or Bust, an exhibition featuring sculpture by Bill Adams, Paul Bergeron, Carl D’Alvia, Elizabeth Ferry, Volker Hüller, Roxanne Jackson, Hein Koh, Rebecca Morgan, Sarah Peters, Janice Sloane, Derek Weisberg, Michael Wetzel, Ana Wieder-Blank, and Nick van Woert. The exhibition opens Friday, July 8th from 6-9 PM, and runs through Sunday, August 14th.
Or Bust is a selection of works that adopt the bust as form. Arrayed as an antiquities gallery, the exhibition is also a survey of contemporary portrait sculpture. Amongst a platoon of aliens, clones, and effigies are, as in classical salons, pedestaled patricians, goddesses, and vessels. At turns erotic, grotesque, comedic, and fantastical, the assembled works exemplify the mutability and mutation of an ancient, enduring art form.
Special thanks to Asya Geisberg Gallery, 11R Gallery, Elizabeth Ferry, and Michael Wetzel for their contributions to this exhibition.
