For the inaugural edition of the Chicago Invitational, the gallery partners with Soft Opening, London to co-present a booth dedicated to new works by Sara Knowland. Signifying a continuing interest in feminist voices, for Knowland, the figure of the witch proves useful in examining female-ness, its depiction and expression. The use of the humorous cartoon of the Wicked Witch of the West with her buckled hat, purplish clothing and emerald skin engages a universally recognizable motif of a shapeshifting figure that oscillates between good and evil, between human and creature, between male and female. To receive a PDF with detailed information on the works, please contact the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
