‘The Intimate Collection’ At Yellow Peril

Still time to catch the funny and provocative “The Intimate Collection” — sewn works and photographs that consider “sex, death, skin, bones, undergarments, intimacy, loneliness, destruction, healing and humor” — from artist Kathryn Parker Almanas.

“I play with how we recognize ourselves in textures and materials,” Almanas notes in the artist statement about The Intimate Collection. “I make use of pleather, satin, lace, panties, and bras to evoke thoughts of their intentional usage. Sewing, pinning, fastening act as means of healing and holding together
what seems to be falling apart.”

Reviewed in The Boston Globe.

Closing reception and artist talk: 6pm to 9pm, Saturday, September 24.

Exhibition runs through September 24, Yellow Peril Gallery, 60 Valley Street, #5, (directions)
