Hello Project Gallery opening reception: Soft Diet by Emily Peacock
Soft Diet is an endless supply of blue gloves, sage green walls, red Jell-O, bright trash bags and wilted balloons and flowers. From humor and mystery to repulsion and fear, Emily Peacock offers up a body of work on the hyper-awareness that came from facing the mortality of her biggest collaborator.
Many of the works in Soft Diet combine the sentimentality of photography and film with the harsh reality of the inanimate object. Peacock divulges what lies beneath the romanticism of memory — a place where the dissatisfaction of the present meets the fantasy of an endemic past.
On view through Feb. 7, 2015.
