PK SHOP is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of photographs by Polly Borland entitled YOU. On view at 511 West 27 Street, the exhibition will present an intimate look at works from two of the artist’s latest series.
YOU is a meditation on love, from the heightened anticipation of possibility to its ultimately crushing disappointment. Photographing mirrors that support and reflect stuffed figures and mannequins bound in taut flesh-tone stockings, Borland masterfully creates abstract compositions that are both visceral and hauntingly beautiful. The evocative cocoon-like forms undergo a transformative process within the series. Desire and yearning bud from a fragile formless state, only to be displaced by rejection, hopelessness and madness as the series progresses.
