Ilona Szwarc: Unsex me here
April 27th- June 1st, 2019

“Set in a dreamlike borderland somewhere between the glitz of Hollywood Regency and the forests of European fairy tales, “Unsex me here” is an ambiguous parable about sex, nature, memory, and repressed wildness. The title of the exhibition is derived from William Shakespeare’s character Lady Macbeth, and her plea to unclean spirits to transform her from a soft-hearted woman into someone capable of unflinching acts of “direst cruelty.” Szwarc finds her subject, like Lady Macbeth, in a moment of arrested psychological and bodily change, with all the nascent dangers those developments entail. “Unsex me here” is Szwarc’s most narrative body of work to date.”
