june 17-21, 2015
OPENING: june 17, 6-8:30 PM
Gallery Loupe is pleased to present Mall Girl - a fanciful jewelry installation by artist Misha Kahn. This multiform exhibition of necklaces, bracelets, brooches, and earrings, installed on coordinated displays designed by Kahn, will be presented at a Pop-Up Gallery at 2 Rivington Street, New York City - transformed, for the occasion, into a dystopian wonderland of ironic enchantment. For, after all, what is a mall?
Kahn's bold and bizarre environment centers on an inflated "fountain" featuring figural perfume bottles of blown glass, which have been topped with lids created from human hair. A bloated chandelier hangs above, while illustrated panels that frame biomorphic Mylar "mirrors," surround the room.
Way, way beyond offbeat...Mall Girl will be an absolute riot !!!
