Behind The Wall

October 25 – 26, 2008

Parlour is excited to announce the opening of its inaugural exhibition, Behind the Wall, on October 25, 2008 from 6-9 PM. The show features works by three brilliant, young artists, Bijoux Altamirano, Jiyoung Park and Mai Ueda, and takes place in the apartment of Bijoux Altamirano. Behind the Wall is a multi-media exhibition that traverses “the other side”, where nothingness gives shape to form, where time flickers between past, present and future, where robotic voices emanate from human beings, and where a constant chilling soundtrack can be heard at all times. Ranging from painting to performance, the works in Behind the Wall navigate another dimension and by doing so question our own perceptions of reality.
