Ilona Szwarc: Virgin Soap
September 4 – October 9, 2021

Opening reception: Saturday, September 4th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm

“Virgin Soap — a solo exhibition of photographs and sculpture by Ilona Szwarc. In this new body of work, the Polish American artist documents herself casting a model’s torso in silicone and plaster. The model lies prone on a table, her breasts exposed, classically posed against an electric blue backdrop. A perverse tutorial proceeds: Szwarc stands behind the model, a presence at once intimate and coercive. The artist binds her subject’s breasts with laces to measure them, then covers the model’s breasts, shoulders, and mouth in green silicone.”
