Cudelice Brazelton “Violent Groom” at Galeria Wschód, Warsaw
“Hands gloss over you. There’s a flick or a twirl of the finger and you can hear the coil in your head take a snap. It felt so good. The sting of the spray makes your teeth clench, but the thrill remains”
“Violent Groom” is an exhibition that incorporates modes of painting, collage, sculpture, and site specific work that considers the orifice. These works are not a stand in for a body. They are simply ones that go unseen. Take a look and perhaps they will announce their presence. An announcement to insist on their existence. For you, the viewer. Various materials are used from acrylic, leather, aluminum, paper, ceramic, and hair products to suggest new tools. The surfaces of these works are filled with information. Content that crusted off the body that made them. Unwillingly. Unintentionally. There is a desire to keep things clean, but it often just conflicts with the natural when making the work. You gotta love it. It is who one is.
