Daniel Firman’s Empty Figures

Daniel Firman’s plaster sculptures of figures in various modes of suspension and abstraction remind me of a mix between Erwin Wurm’s early photos and Melanie Bonajo’s photographs which are featured in B/D Book:2.

Melanie Bonajo

Melanie Bonajo’s work is stunning. Her work are like bizarre living effigies to household self-bondage via the bric-a-brac of every day life that so literally and metaphorically “tie us down.” On the one hand hilarious in their absurdity, and on the other depressing in their attempt to lay bare self, domesticity and the modern world, Bonajo’s works are impossible, sexual, beautiful and seductive. Her show opens this May 14th, at PPOW gallery.
