Cj describes the exhibition as a deviation from her traditional art form hyperrealism because it leaves room for interpretation. With this in mind, the artist has transformed the exhibition space into a ‘bounce house’ that is supposed to reflect an old school asylum with padded walls and floors. The idea of a bounce house reflects the intertwining themes of both children’s playtime and the clinically insane, where Cj’s works are hung on padded upholstered walls. In this way, the exhibition may conjure childhood nostalgia or perhaps feelings of entrapment and claustrophobia.
While we regrettably can’t make it to the opening night, we know this is an exhibition not to be missed (if you can help it).
Cj Hendry’s RORSCHACH exhibition opens its doors to the public on Wednesday, April 10th until Sunday, April 21st at 202 Plymouth Street Dumbo, Brooklyn.
