Under the Oven Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of LOULAPOP, an immersive multimedia installation by artist Aima Saint Hunon in collaboration with lighting designer Emmanuel Gambin. Saturated in light, color, and sweetness, Saint Hunon’s LOULAPOP constructs a fantastical world predicated on gender equity through sensual play. Saint Hunon flirts with material and symbolic duality, apposing bronze figures and spritely 3D-printed forms, oil paintings with trance-like illuminations, ecstatically uniting themes of feminine power and sacred masculinity.
Opening Thursday 9/12 6-9pm @ Under the Oven Gallery, 98 Rivington Street, NYC.

Studio Visit | June Ahrens
Large sheets of reflective Mylar covered the floor of June Ahrens’ studio, casting thin, white ribbons around the walls. As the afternoon light shifted in the space, the reflections began to resemble the shimmering surface of a pool or lake with ripples of water, yielding a predictable sense of calm. Suspended from the ceiling were over two hundred wire and rope strands interspersed with knotted bundles representing flowers and thorns in a “symbolic garden.” Some were loose and sprawling, while others seemed tightly bound like a nest. These elements comprised a mock-up of Ahrens’ upcoming installation How Many Tears Are Enough? at the University of Connecticut’s Stamford Gallery, opening this October. READ MORE
