peregrine honig: Suites
september 18, 2015 - december 19, 2015
Belger Crane Yard Gallery presents Suites, a multimedia installation by artist Peregrine Honig. The exhibition features a near-exact replica of a room in Kansas City’s historic Hotel Phillips that served as the artist’s impromptu studio in early 2015. Working alone in “temporary luxury,” Honig created a series of seductive, ink-blotted drawings that explore themes of privacy, intimacy, power, and sexuality. The resulting work hangs lavishly on the walls while a sensuous dance suite, choreographed by Jane Gotch and filmed by Johanna Brooks, plays on the hotel television. The film, 1801, was produced by Honig with Gotch and Brooks serving as co-directors and co-editors.
