Patrice Aphrodite Helmar “Bird on a Wire” at Gaa Gallery, Provincetown

Gaa Gallery Provincetown is pleased to exhibit BIRD ON A WIRE, an exhibition of new photographs by New York-based artist Patrice Aphrodite Helmar. BIRD ON A WIRE opens on Friday, September 7, and is on view through November 2.

The exhibition is a collection of black and white portraits that boast a tactile bridge between subject and viewer, as they explore desire, mortality, and the classical forms of love: storge, philia, eros, agape. Animated by empathic and sustained considerations of the human gaze and its accompanying complexities, BIRD ON A WIRE frames its characters—many of whom are queer, trans, or gender fluid—in indoor and outdoor spaces that carry traditional suggestions of safety: the bedroom, the garden, the boudoir.  With these photographs, Helmar breaks keen communicative ground regarding social vulnerability and the noble ferocity of alternative, individual identities.
