Susan Danis, "Jack-no-Flash".
Susan Danis is in love with the universe as it is. Her work is a wickedly funny hurly-burly of Coney Island, Italian reliquaries, Goya, the bottom of the sea, and everything else.
Susan delights in working with an extravagant variety of materials: from neon to feather boas and toys, to pickled snakes, dentures and used shoelaces. She has a special fondness for the visceral and things of or related to the body. Believing in the inherent abundance of the world, she gathers hair from salons, teeth from oral surgeons and black rubber car innards from auto mechanics, all in exchange for chocolates. Recently she filled a gumball machine, sporting a ten cents sign, with bull testicles and garnet colored rubber fishing worms. "One Thin Dime" will be on view in the show, as well as in the current issue of Artforum.
Strange Pleasures opens at L2kontemporary on May 14 from 7-10 pm. and all are welcome. The show runs through June 18.
