Opening Reception – Stephon Senegal

February 17, 2017 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm


Senegal brings a viewpoint to his work fortified in the duality of
ritualism. It is vicious and voluptuous…His practice explores
equine, human, canine and other animal structures; a reference to
themes of vassalage and the tools used in the subjugation of one
group by another. He moves effortlessly between a number of mediums;
to include wood, steel, photography and video, to create a narrative
that is visceral and tangible. The practice is further extended into
public installations referencing those notions of subjugation and
conflict using location choice as a decoding component. In the words
of the artist: “Brutality and carnal impetus are fundamental drivers
of intent and interaction…”. This exhibition feastures a selection
of Senegal’s photographs.
