Fallen calls to mind a haunting and gorgeous otherworldly autumnal embrace of dismantling degeneration. This new exhibition explores not only an unfolding of new desires and the yearning that comes with the change of seasons, but also the dark spaces of our imaginations and relationships regarding decay, the fallen world, falling from grace, and fallen women. What tricks are at play in the turn of a season? What is real in this supposed postlapsarian world? What is fantasy? What illusions do we fall for in the midst of our everyday? What lush and luminous tarnished treasure can be found only through the process of rust, corrosion, destruction, and descent?
Epicure Café, located at 11104 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA, is open 7 days a week from 5 – midnight. Fallen will be on view at Epicure Café from October 11 through December 5.
