Underworld by Klara Kristalova — New York, USA — 27 FEB - 12 APR, 2014
Galerie Perrotin, 909 Madison Avenue, New York
Klara Kristalova constructs a dark, odd, and yet familiar world. The characters that inhabit her universe are peculiar, alone, quiet, perhaps lost, as if they have just escaped from a cruel tale, waiting for a passer-by to stop and indicate the way. For her first exhibition at Galerie Perrotin, New York, Kristalova presents a series of new characters who form an ambiguous circus cast: performing acrobats, a bird with a girl’s face, a boy with mosquito wings, a magician’s daughter. They all carry their own enigma of good and evil.
