photography by Shannon May Powell
curation and production by Marley Sheridan
Coalesced by the textural nature of their work, both Marley Sheridan and Shannon May Powell’s exhibition use satin and silk photographic installations to show how bodies can become rolls of material that fold and unfold on one another.
Soft velvet pleats brushing against cool latex. The rose pink folds of the sex no different from the depressions of a seat cover. The fleshy clothing of a body indecipherable. Rolls of plush fabric that fold and unfold on one another, creating a new order of extraneous gender and otherness infinitely divisible. Emotional objects made inanimate. The final exaltation of becoming, at once, both (no)thing and (every)thing.
