Trestle Gallery is pleased to announce “Queer as a Clockwork PeachFish”, a solo exhibition by m Holloway Burgess. “Queer as a Clockwork PeachFish” will feature an installation consisting of sculptural objects and two distinct editions of photographs. One edition is titled, “Queer as a Clockwork Orange” (portraits of notable GLBTIQ New Yorkers in handmade sets fashioned after drawings in Stanley Kubrick’s film “A Clockwork Orange”) and the other edition of photographs is titled, “My Something” (nudes). By creating a space in which to question and dislodge socially constructed mores, the artist embraces the fluidity of GLBTIQ culture. The installation provides a means for various considerations of the title to emerge.
