Hystrionics and the Forgotten Arm

Lacing. 2011. Edition of 5 +AP. Archival inkjet print.

May 12- June 16th, 2012

With images of Victoriana, pugilism, medical anomalies and barren landscapes, Hystrionics and the Forgotten Arm proposes a choreographed fight outside the circled square. Margaret Meehan’s drawings, photographs and sculpture-based installation lets innocence collide with the monstrous, evoking race, gender, and empathy for otherness. The exhibition was originally installed at Austin’s Women & Their Work Gallery in October of 2011 and remounted with new works for the Conduit installation.
