Unsex Me Here

“Set in a dreamlike borderland somewhere between the glintz of Hollywood regency and the forests of European fairy tales, Unsex Me Here is an ambiguous parable about sex, nature, memory, and repressed wildness. The title of the exhibition is derived from Lady Macbeth’s plea to unclean spirits to transform her from a soft hearted woman into someone capable of unflinching acts of “direst cruelty.” Szwarc finds her subject, like Lady Macbeth, in a moment of arrested psychological and bodily change, with all the nascent dangers those changes entail.” - Make Room, Los Angeles. On view from April 27 to June 1, 2019.
