Carole A. Feuerman: Hero and Leander will have its opening reception Friday, May 6 at C24 Gallery, 560 West 24 Street, New York, from 6 PM to 8 PM. The exhibition will introduce Feuerman's newest works, Dancers, and a sixteen-foot bronze sculpture called Beyond The Golden Mean. Two dance performances will be featured at the event. A thirty-foot interactive water video made especially for the exhibition by Michelangelo Bastiani will shower the wall of the gallery.
Highlighting the exhibition is Leda and the Swan, returning from the 2015 Venice Biennale. Dressed in a 1920’s bathing suit, the resin sculpture depicts a reinterpretation of the classic Greek tale of Leda. According to the myth, Zeus seduces Leda while disguised as a swan, and Leda later bears Helen of Troy. In Feuerman’s own words, the sculpture “embraces the eroticism associated with much of Greek mythology, while telling the story of deceit and treachery.”
Another featured sculpture, DurgaMa, was inspired by the Hindu goddess Durga. The bronze figure sits in complete tranquility on a sacred lotus flower. The sculpture tells the story of birth, rebirth, and survival, a common theme present in much of Feuerman’s work. The flower’s potential to live for over a thousand years, along with Durga’s symbolism, creates a picture of the elegance and beauty of Mother Nature.
Feuerman's sculptures have a common thread that touches all of us, masking time and space. The powerful stories they tell of strength, perseverence, and balance, speak to collectors and observers alike.
