Scope NYC 2013
Baang + Burne Contemporary is proud be selected as an exhibitor at Scope NYC (March 6-10). We are excited to be presenting Sophia Wallace and her latest large-scale installation, CLITERACY: 100 Natural Laws as the solo artist for the prestigious art fair.
In a hyper sexualized era where sex seems passé, Wallace highlights our general mis-information with CLITERACY: 100 Natural Laws. CLITERACY is a large-scale panel spanning 10 feet by 13 feet with 100 Natural Laws as text art and a six feet neon sign, spelling Cliteracy suspended
in front. The work explores a paradox; the global obsession with sexualizing female bodies in a world that is maddeningly illiterate when it comes to female sexuality.
Each of the law entangles statistical facts with wit, blending together media mis-representation, historical misconceptions of female anatomy and international atrocities of female gentile mutilation.
