    Margaret Meehan
    Hystrionics and the Forgotten Arm

    October 6 - November 12, 2011
    Opening Reception: Thursday, October 6, 6 to 8pm

    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 installations let innocence collide with the monstrous, evoking race, gender, and empathy for otherness.

    Interested in teratology, the study of real and mythical monsters, Meehan combines the man made with the freak of nature. The exhibition includes seemingly disparate things: Circassian Women, hypertrichosis (a condition also known as werewolf syndrome) and the history of Boxing, a sport that legitimizes our need to fight, using others to sublimate our own desires.
