O’ Project Space is pleased to present “Torso of whatever” a solo exhibition of works by Aimee Goguen curated by Louise O’Donnell. On view September 20 through October 18th 2019, opening reception September 20th 7-11pm.
A multi-media body of “projectiles”
large unidentified mass
Objects thrown into space (empty or not) by the exertion of force
the poltergeist moves through
slapping, slopping, sloshing, sloughing
The body of sonics
suck-back from a “BOOM”
Self-amputated and trans-mutating
this recycled apocalyptic trash-slut
A torso of whatever
