Karin Broker my small circus
January 20 @ 10:00 am - April 9 @ 5:00 pm
Since 2014, Karin Broker has been responding with ire to Western Society’s expectations levied against the female gender through her work. For my small circus, she has created an army of performers whose bodies have morphed to turn their baggage into weapons or shields, so they might be ready to resist a system built to control them. Broker’s aim is to make powerful, beautiful objects that champion optimism and strength. Broker’s work in both two and in three dimensions, reveal the complexities of the artist’s interior thought and outward expression, playing with our perceptions.
Exhibition on view: January 20 – April 9 in the Horlock Gallery
