Mallory Page: A Ponderous Weight (Why did I not discover before that it was nothing?) . April 6-28, 2019

This exhibition features a new body of large-scale, abstract works and is the second installation of Page’s several part series, A Ponderous Weight, an interpretation of Kate Chopin’s The Awakening. In the gallery's front room, a site specific installation, Initiation Room, interweaves canvas panels behind resin busts of Venus to cover walls, pool onto the floor, and envelop viewers in a sense of space. The second room of the show will feature Page’s stretched canvases.  Here, she draws attention to concepts such as opposition and transformation, a meditation of sorts on the antagonistic impulses that define Chopin’s heroine as well as on the inner conflict she experiences while moving from a woman rooted in Creole society toward a life defined by sensuality and candor. Page also imagines here another more mystical transition, in which the female figure emerges from the gulf as Aphrodite, the ancient Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation who was born from the sea. Recalling the slow movement of water in the Gulf, the works in this show explore lightness, transparency, motion and difference.
